About "May All Children"

For the 40th anniversary of UNICEF in 1986, the Founder/Artistic Director of Music Together, Ken Guilmartin, composed a song that would touch families all over the world with its simple heartfelt wish that all children—that everyone—should live in peace. Originally titled "Solstice Song," it was rearranged and retitled in memory of the events of September 11, 2001, and became part of the Music Together Sticks Song Collection in 2002.

To keep world peace and children's well-being foremost in our minds, Laurie's version of "May All Children" is available here in the hope that everyone will sing out its wish for the world. Just fill in your name and email address for an mp3.
