can't see the video from work
"Toast To Freedom" is dedicated to human rights activism around the world. Nearly 50 artists contributed to celebrate Amnesty International's 50th Anniversary. Toast To Freedom was written by music veterans Carl Carlton and Larry Campbell.
"We were both really passionate about this cause," Campbell said in a phone interview. "When we recorded the original rhythm track for this, it was such a great day. Everybody was just completely in the spirit of the cause, the spirit of the song and the spirit of the music. One of the great things about working with Levon was he always made playing music a joyful event. And I know he wanted to see this thing through as far as he could."
Amnesty International Secretary General Salil Shetty said in a phone interview from London that the group chose to release the song on Thursday, World Press Freedom Day, to support the cause of open media in places like Syria and China. And he sees much progress as Amnesty celebrates 50 years.
