Anthem for World Peace CD by Greg Jones now available on over 125 music sites as accolades mount worldwide!
Cleveland, OHIO (USA) May 29, 2005 "WOW'...'BEAUTIFUL'...' possibly the most important musical message of today'! These are a few of the responses regarding the hot new Maxi-Single CD recording entitled GOD BLESS THE WORLD-WHILE YOU BLESS AMERICA (aka... Not Just America) written, produced and performed by Cleveland, Ohio native GREG JONES.
With a We are the World 'feel', this special release is a unique blend of adult contemporary, easy listening, soul and inspiration combined with a powerful message of peace and harmony. In fact, the special CD was recorded on the same mixing board which was owned by Kenny Rogers and used by Quincy Jones, Michael Jackson and others for the 'We are the World' project. A section of the song's lyrics reads 'God bless the world...not just America...God Bless the whole wide world...so our kids can live in harmony...God bless the world'!
The Maxi-Single, released by ORVILLE RECORDS is garnering exciting response through top digital music websites in the U.S, Britain, Finland, Germany and recently entered the Australian Easy Listening Top 100 Music Charts at #8 with a bullet! Also, the anthem entered the UK Soft Rock Top 100 Music Charts at #7 and then climbed to #2!! Orville Records also recently inked a deal with two of the world's largest web distributors, MusicNet and AMG for additional web distribution through top music sites such as AOL MusicNet, Yahoo Launch, Virgin Digital, FYE Download, MSN Music, ClearChannel, Amazon, Target Music, Itunes, Napster and others.

Commercial radio is fast catching wind of this special release and is next in line while experts are declaring GOD BLESS THE WORLD-While You Bless America a future classic!
With over 200 unreleased songs under his belt, songwriter Greg Jones explains his inspiration for this special recording. 'I would turn on the news each day and see how so many world leaders resort to war as a means of settling conflict, as if human life is expendable. It would make me sick. They always say that if you want to see a change you have to do something, whatever you can, even when you're just one person. I've always been inspired by the powerful messages of greats like John Lennon, Bono and Bob Dylan so I did what I could do. I wrote a song.
Jones selected one of the hottest new studios in Cleveland, Ohio, Ante Up Audio to record this special project. The anthem was co-produced and engineered by old friend Bruce Seifert, who has recorded with Jones in the past, and music tracks performed by Michael Seifert (his son) who further enhanced Jones' music. Both Bruce and Michael are highly acclaimed Award Winners in the music industry. 'We go back over 20 years. Michael used to run around Bruce's studio touching all the knobs on the board when he was like five years old. It was just great working with them again, states Jones.
Promoting a song of Peace isn't normally very easy. You have a few folks out here believe it or not who are actually anti-peace. That's why it is up to those of us who are pro-peace, to do everything we can to promote the musical message of Peace. Some people may feel that a song for peace is corny. But if this musical message can help in any way to bring our troops home...and to stop more troops from going to battle (by way of draft), then we would have accomplished a great mission. The only way this can be done is to have a world of Peace. I'm so very thankful for the response worldwide that the anthem is receiving. It's exciting how so many people have embraced the song and the message ... and the snowball effect has been incredible!'
***This is a special release in that a portion of proceeds will go to spouses of lost troops through Red Cross. For more info contact Orville Records via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 216/531-7676.
