  Sample Dedications

Anyone can participate in World Music Days simply by adding a dedication to an existing event or by organizing a special event around the theme of “Harmony For Humanity”. Dedications can be spoken from stage or written in the program; they are fully customizable as audiences vary by event.

Some artists give their dedications for a few minutes, while some are brief. All are equally appreciated and appropriate; it only takes a moment for your audience to realize that they can join us in making a difference.

Below are a few sample dedications. Feel free to use one of these, or create your own!

  • We would like to dedicate this next song to Daniel Pearl, who believed music had the power to bridge multicultural differences and bring harmony to the world.

October 10 was Danny’s birthday, and this performance is part of Daniel Pearl World Music Days.

  • We would like to take a moment to honor a global peace initiative that began with a tragedy. Daniel Pearl was the journalist & musician who was murdered by terrorists in Pakistan.

Music is a unique bridge-builder, and “Harmony for Humanity” is the theme of Daniel Pearl World Music Days: We hope that you will take this reminder to find ways to bridge cultural differences and bring harmony to the world.

  • Today, we join musicians and audiences around the globe in Daniel Pearl World Music Days. At each of these concerts, artists take a moment to remind people of our common humanity. In the news and in the media, we are often surrounded with reminders of the things that divide us, but music, as the universal language, is a bridge that brings people of all backgrounds together, and today we celebrate that with our performance.

We thank you for joining us in helping to spread "Harmony for Humanity".
