Amnesty International celebrates its 50th Anniversary this year, and to celebrate nearly 50 artists have come together to record the song “Toast To Freedom,” written by music veterans Carl Carlton and Larry Campbell.

Artists include Levon Helm, Kris Kristofferson, Carly Simon, Angelique Kidjo, Ewan McGregor, Saul Hernandez, Donald Fagen, Warren Haynes, Keb Mo, Eric Burdon, Taj Mahal, Florent Pagny, Marianne Faithfull, Jane Birkin, Jimmy Barnes, Rosanne Cash, Shawn Mullins, the Blind Boys of Alabama, and Gentleman, among others. The song is dedicated to human rights activism around the world, and all proceeds will benefit Amnesty International.
