Gabriel's Heroes

Here is a very moving video with Peter Gabriel's cover of the David Bowie classic, Heroes, for "Hope for Haiti."

This video is from a few years ago. It's called "Haiti" and the song is by Arcade Fire, one of my favorite music bands.

In partnership with the UN Foundation?s Central Emergency Response Fund, Habitat for Humanity and Dave Matthews Band's BAMA Works Haitian relief effort, Music for Relief is working to provide immediate aid with food, water, and emergency medical supplies, and long-term sustainable housing solutions for the people affected by this catastrophic natural disaster.

Watch. Listen. Then download the album, and support the cause.
I did.
