BEYOND THE DARKNESS: Paul Korda & the 32nd St/USC Choir in USC University Park neighborhood

Selected as a "Song for Peace" by UN supported PEACE ONE DAY, "Beyond the Darkness" was recorded at A&M Studio A Hollywood, where "We are the World" was recorded, and on location in East Los Angeles,the music video was born out of Paul Korda teaching youngsters at the community centers of East Los Angeles, to outlet their frustrations through improvisational music creation. Seeing the benefits to the kids, brought about by this spontaneous creation, he then went on to write "Beyond the Darkness, with the intent of gaining financial resources for this form of education, and with the help of many, made this video and turned the song into a musical Holiday greetings card which can be downloaded for the 2007 Holiday Season, proceeds that will contribute to the Magnet School Program for the Performing Arts
There's little doubt that creativity can help steer our Earth back from the edge of destruction and help children to retain their innocence and build their character, avoiding the pitfalls of urban destructive behavior, especially that of abusive parents.
So support creativity by sending a Holiday email of the download and the artwork as your way of saying Happy Holiday to your family and friends, by going to
Directed by Emmy winner Linda Yellen, arranged by Phil Collins' keyboard player and film composer J. Peter Robinson, guitars by Michael Miller (Geno Vanelli, Chick Corea) Choirmaster Mark Johnston. Special thanks to Herb Alpert and everyone involved for helping to make it all possible. All the love in the World to the children of the 32nd St./USC Magnet School for the Arts and the children from the community centers of East Los Angeles, as well as all the children of our small planet.
