Notes & Reviews:

Twenty-five years after the first AIDS Songbook came out, GPR Records and Sing for Hope have joined forces to sing for hope and in the cause of ending AIDS, a disease still claiming the lives of millions every year. Composers from all over the globe were commissioned to provide a global portrait of AIDS today. All profits from the sale of this album will go to amfAR (The American Foundation for AIDS Research). Never has such an all-star line up of International Singers been assembled on a single CD. In addition to Sharon Stone and Ansel (The Fault Lies in Our Stars) Elgort reading poetry, the classical artist line-up includes: Joyce DiDonato, Jamie Barton, Noah Stewart, Sean (Forte) Panniker, Matthew Polenzani, Anthony Dean Griffey, Yo-Yo Ma and many more.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
An estimated 1.6 million people die of AIDS world-wide each year. This album offers "a global musical portrait of AIDS today with songs about activism and antiretrovirals, love and loss, and our hope for a cure". Anyone affected by AIDS will be touched deeply by these songs, and anyone interested in current American song writers will find this a fine sampling of recent works. Notes and texts.
