Tina Turner releases new album via Pledge Music
16:01 | Monday July 9, 2012.
Tina Turner, Regula Curti and Dechen Shak-Dagsay have teamed up with international direct-to-fan platform Pledge Music to release their new album.
Children Beyond is the follow-up project to predecessor Beyond (2009) -a platinum seller in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
Universal released Children Beyond in these territories in 2011, but Pledge is now bringing the title to the world in a repackage that includes a DVD of the making off, plus exclusive extras including signed copies, silver bracelets and more.
Together with 30 children from different cultures and nations, the three singers have recorded versions of twelve prayers and mantras from the religions Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism, Islam and Sikhism.
All proceeds are being passed to the three artists' respective foundations (the TINA Foundation, the SEESCHAU Foundation and the DEWA CHE Foundation) in equal amounts. In this way, the singers are supporting intercultural, peace-promoting projects in education and research for children and youths, as well as projects for children, mothers and women in distress.
Tina said, “We want to take as many people as possible with us on this journey and create more tolerance and peace through our music.“
Malcolm Dunbar, Managing Director of PledgeMusic said, “Tina Turner is an iconic artist who has been a tireless campaigner for peace and religious tolerance for many years. Joining with Regula Curti, Dechen Shak-Dagsay, and the amazing voices of Children from around the world, is already a proven success and PledgeMusic are pleased to be able to provide a platform for this important album to reach a wider, international audience.”
Children Beyond - the 2nd album in the Beyond series fron Tina, Regula and Dechen - repackaged and expanded!
Dear Friends, welcome to our PledgeMusic page. We’re here to offer you a new and exclusive way to go ‘Beyond’ and help our organisation to spread it’s message of love and peace across many religions and belief systems.
We’ve teamed up with PledgeMusic to release the second Beyond album – Children Beyond: United with Children in Prayer. The original pressing of the album had a limited release in Germany, Switzerland & Austria but we are now very happy to present the full album to you here, worldwide outside of these territories where it has already been released, and exclusively with PledgeMusic.
For legal reasons we regret that we are unable to accept pledges from the territories where the record has already been released – Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
This version of the album has been fully repackaged and expanded to include a DVD of the journey of the project, featuring Tina, Regula & Dechen singing with the children, and giving an insight into how the Beyond project works, and also a behind the scenes look at the Seeschau Centre.
We’ve added a number of other items here that you can ‘pledge on’ to help support the work of the Beyond Foundation, to whom 100% of the profits will go. Some of them are signed or bespoke and all are designed to spread the message and bring you happiness, whilst at the same time supporting the work of our charity, allowing us to do more with the children that come to us.
No matter what you ‘pledge’ for from the list on the right hand side, you’ll automatically receive a digital download of the Children Beyond album after we’ve hit our 100% target.
Thanks for your time and best wishes to you all.
Tina, Regula & Dechen
