Rahman's new song for International Charts
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
February 24, 2007
Rahman is all set to rule the international music charts. With the release of his self-composed-and-sung English track titled 'Pray For Me Brother' produced by Universal Music, it could just be possible. However, notwithstanding the commercial reasons, Rahman has composed the
number for a noble cause to support the vision of Millennium Development Goals.The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) was formed from the pact that was signed in the year 2000 at the significant UN Millennium Summit held at New York by Prime Ministers, Presidents, and other noted leaders from 189 countries. Rahman is an ardent supporter of MDGs that functions with an aim to eradicate poverty, hunger, and disease in the world by 2015.

'Pray For Me Brother' will be made available on the Millennium campaign's website www.millenniumcampaign.org, for free downloads according to Salil Shetty, director of the Millennium Campaign, New York. The song will also be used for the organization's global campaign to propagate its goals around the world including Europe and the US.

Rahman mentioned that this song would be India's rendition to the world in achieving the cause of MDGs. "Hunger is the only common thing among people and it is only to survive that people beg. I hope that this song will inspire people to do something to eradicate those kind of social evils", the maestro added.

Not many people knew that Rahman has been appointed by the UN as Brand Ambassador to eradicate tuberculosis. "It was while planning to compose a song for the same that I started to think about the much bigger universal issue - poverty and hunger. I decided to shift the focus and with the help of my friend Blaaze came up with the song", revealed Rahman.

A 'stand up' event - to promote the cause of the Millenium Campaign and its Civil Society partners - was held in October, which registered a record attendance of 23 million people participating for the MDGs. Out of which 18 million joined from Asia and 9.7 from India.

Time to make the world a better place.
