Grammy®-Winning Artists, Rock Stars and Composers Join Forces in First US-Produced Benefit Album for Gaza Relief 

2 Unite All Proceeds will fund medical, psychological support in Middle East

A diverse group of famed musicians including Peter Gabriel, The Police’s Stewart Copeland, Rick Allen of Def Leppard, System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian and Grammy® Award-winning opera singer Sasha Cooke, have come together for a first-of-its-kind benefit album to deliver urgent humanitarian aid to Palestinians in Gaza. Produced by Project Peace On Earth (PPOE), the album features 26 powerful musical tracks of healing and peace.

With over 2,100 people dead, more than 3,000 children injured, and over 370,000 Palestinian children in Gaza left traumatized after this summer's assault, 2 Unite All proceeds will go directly to support the surgical and medical teams of Palestine Children’s Relief Fund (PCRF) and the vital psychological counseling supported by UNRWA USA. PPOE will also lead a PTSD therapy effort with renowned psychotherapist Dr. Edward Tick and continue its peace initiatives in the Holy Land.

Rick Allen of Def Leppard says, “Our world is finally focusing on resolving this conflict. Too many lives have been lost and too many innocent children and families remain perilously injured.” Lauren Monroe, Allen's wife and songwriting partner, adds, “The beautiful people of Palestine require the world's immediate medical support. Contributing a song to help bring necessary healing and resources to Gaza was the least Rick and I could do.” Allen concludes, “I'm encouraging all Def Leppard fans to buy a copy of 2 Unite All and support this cause.”

The 2 Unite All album, which features cover art from renowned illustrator Greg Spalenka and was made possible with the assistance of TuneCore distribution, is available for purchase at:

Pre-Show Interview: Def Leppard
by Michael Gallucci on Mon, Jun 22, 2009

When Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen had his arm amputated after a 1984 car accident, plenty of people told him he’d never drum again. He still bristles as he recalls one particular doctor who wasn’t very encouraging about the prospect of continuing to play with one of the world’s most popular arena rock acts. “It was horrible, he says. "Initially, my mind tricked me into thinking there was nothing wrong, and then it broke me in gently. It was like, ‘NASA, we have a problem.’
