The Music Heard Around the World

School children across the world listen to the music of Michael Jackson and when given the opportunity of performing it, they do just that.  The following section of Words and Violence is here because we truly believe that music is extraordinarily important in a world torn apart by bullying, violence, harmful confrontation, and war.  So often through music, words can be heard, when they can't be in conversation.  Listen as a Slovenian choir, an Indian South African performer, school children from New York and Ireland, performers at a Nobel Peace Prize Concert, and at Pavorotti's annual concert for the world's children all pay tribute to Michael and help evoke words of hope for all of their audiences.  The final number is the 2010 Grammy tribute to Michael honoring one of his many concerns for the world.
