All proceeds from the album will benefit the United Nations Voluntary Trust Fund, as one of the largest unified fronts of artists ever assembled for a charitable music album. The goal is to not only uplift the victims of one of the world’s most profitable crimes, but to also bring social awareness, so change can be made in communities to stop this from persisting.
