We released "Higher Ground" on our PFC 2 Songs Around The World album but decided to revamp it for our Peace Through Music event last year. For this 2020 version, we added R&B vocalist Aloe Blacc, world-renowned percussionist Sheila E., blues vocalist Shemekia Copeland, soul folk duo The War and Treaty, banjo greats Bela Fleck and Silkroad's Rhiannon Giddens, and pedal steel guitarist Robert Randolph.
We must never stop trying to be better than we were yesterday and the day before. Join us along with more than 20 musicians from seven countries for this Stevie Wonder classic and let's reach our highest ground together.
