The rock legend Tina Turner, the Christian Regula Curti and the Buddhist Dechen Shak-Dagsay are releasing their new CD - 'Children Beyond'. This is the follow-up project to the successful 'Beyond' CD which gave the singers' musical interpretation of Christianity and Tibetan Buddhism traditions and sold over 100,000 copies worldwide. It was not only these three singers who contributed to 'Children Beyond' but also thirty children. The CD is a musical interpretation of prayers and mantras from the five world religions and Sikhism. These were set to music by Roland Frei from NJP-Studios with a bridging combination of East-West melodies. The children sang the prayers and songs on 'Children Beyond' in the old languages of Arabic, Hebrew, Latin and Sanskrit. Furthermore, the singers were selected in consultation with various religious leaders to reflect different religious beliefs.
