Blood into Gold - Peter Buffett & Akon

Peter Buffett was asked by non-profit organization, the Culture Project, to write a song for a special event taking place at the United Nations on the ‘International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade’, which is observed worldwide on March 25th. Titled “Blood Into Gold”, the song is a moving advocacy tool to create awareness for the problem of human trafficking.

All proceeds from the download of the single will go to an organization whose purpose is to educate and bring an end to human trafficking worldwide. The issue-inspired track features Akon’s voice and production expertise. A poignant video to accompany the song is currently in production, and the song will be available March 24th on iTunes.
