Sing for Tibet 12.12.12 in McLeod Ganj was well-attended, and people loved the event. The Himalayan Band supported the event with their music. Lisa Dhamija was one of our lead singers. Erika Martincich and her daughter Zanaharia Schuch from France sang and helped with the chorus. Local Tibetan artistes Dhondup, Phuntsok 59 and Dolma sang the "Sounds of Unity", and the director Lobsang Wangyal led the "Words of Truth" prayer.

sing for tibet 12.12.12 - announcement

The situation in Tibet has become more critical than ever, so that people have started giving up their lives in the form of human torches. More than ninety people have set themselves ablaze to express their anguish and misery under the Chinese rule in Tibet. We need to assure them that we hear them, and that we are here to do whatever we can to bring an end to their misery.

Sing for Tibet 12.12.12 is an opportunity to show that you really do care about Tibet. Join us and support this event to let truth, justice, and peace prevail.
Venue and Time: Tibetan Day School, McLeod Ganj, India 6pm, Wednesday (Lhakar), 12.12.12.

The gathering will sing four songs.

  • We are the World by Michael Jackson
  • We Shall Overcome
  • བདེན་ཚིག་སྨོན་ལམ། Words of Truth, a prayer composed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama
  • མཐུན་སྒྲིལ་གྱི་རང་སྒྲ། Sounds of Unity, written by Taklha Gyal and sung by Sherten

It will be a peaceful gathering, with each supporter coming with an item that has to do with Tibet, or such as we have created on our merchandise page for the event — a T-shirt, a poster, a cap, etc.

The proceeds from the sale of the merchandise will be used in administrative works. Excess in funds will be used for other similar campaigns in the future.

The director of the event, Lobsang Wangyal, is an experienced producer of events. He has been producing different events since 2000, most of which were produced without outside funding. (His pockets have gotten flat over the years.)

" We are the world"

lyrics

There comes a time
When we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
And it's time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all
We can't go on
Pretending day by day
That someone, somewhere will soon make a change
We are all a part of
God's great big family
And the truth, you know love is all we need
[Chorus]
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me
Send them your heart
So they'll know that someone cares
And their lives will be stronger and free
As God has shown us by turning stone to bread
So we all must lend a helping hand
[Chorus]
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me
When you're down and out
There seems no hope at all
But if you just believe
There's no way we can fall
Well, well, well, well, let us realize
That a change will only come
When we stand together as one
[Chorus]
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

Written and composed by Michael Jackson
