'It works, it really works'

As a bit of a 'lazy ass, emergency-buddhist' I came across the announcement on the Beyond Facebook page a couple of months ago and though: 'that might be dope'. I bought the hardcopy album 2 weeks ago and it has been glued to my cd player ever since. It got me moving again. Started chanting again and studying the mystical law after a bit of a rough patch in the last couple of months. Children Beyond shows/reminds us that it is actually dead easy to take a firm grip on the helm of your own life by becoming active and sing. Sing along with the beautiful mantra's and prayers and get off your lazy ass and change things within yourself ... and the world around you will change with you.
What better way than to start with children as they are our future. And in this project they show us grown-ups the way.

Another reviewer mentioned that he thinks it is a less positive thing that Tina, Dechen and Regula are less vocally present on this album. I disagree. Not that their voices are not beautiful, they definitely are but can be admired also on their own works. While the 'first Beyond' to me is a wonderful listening album for contemplation, Children Beyond takes things a step further and evokes action: sing along, sing for yourself, chant and polish the mirror that reflects your true self.

My personal favourites are Calling, Om Am Hum, Ganesha Sharanam (can't keep sitting still to that one), Sallallah' Ala Muhammad (where 'Persia almost becomes tangible') the beautiful Sarvesham Svastir Bhavatu and my top, top favourite: Buddham Saranam Gacchami. Probably because it's closer to my heart and the impact of being reminded of 'taking refuge' in your buddha nature is really overwhelming.

This album and it's sister, Beyond, are what the world needs for healing. It's easy to sing with, even if you don't know or understand the lyrics, for adults as well as children. The voices as well as the music are wonderful, uplifting, healing, delightful, brilliant. An "hint" at what's possible if we open up to it. Wonderful to cling to when I need something to keep my mind off the world's problems and get lifted up above the clouds. I play both of them over and over again, as I suspect I will for years to come.

It's blending of religious traditions, music is genius, needed in this world of divisiveness. May there be many more. If you haven't heard it, go get it.

I am a 14 year old girl with a web talk show called Global Voices reaching out. I came across children beyond several times as I am learning about how to bring the world together as one. At first I was intimidated by the fact that several religions were involved and ignored the video and music. The videos and the song's kept coming up and so I finally took the opportunity to listen and educate myself on what it is. The message was just as beautiful as the music. Thank you so much for opening my eyes and my heart. We live in a world that is very narrow mined and how sad are we that we don't open our eyes and ears to the beautiful sound of our own brothers and sisters sharing a message of hope and inspiration. Thank you amazing children for your beautiful message and to all that was involved in this beautiful project. Much success and love you all of you <3

Review first published on tinaturnerblog.com

Children Beyond is the follow-up to the 2009 album Beyond. This album marked a remarkable shift in Tina Turner's career, as it was her first involvement in a spiritual project. Beyond was a big success, reaching a top 10 position in the Swiss album charts and raising approximately 300,000 Swiss Francs (325,000 US Dollars) for several charity projects. Therefore, it was a logical decision to continue the project with Children Beyond, which will be released in Switzerland today.

There are a few significant departures from the first Beyond album. The most noticeable is that Tina Turner, Regula Curti and Dechen Shak-Dagsay are now joined by a choir of thirty children. The three ladies are not as prominently featured, the children are the real stars.

For this album, a wider range of prayers and songs from different religions was chosen. The album includes songs from Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism and Sikhism. This creates an incredibly varied sound, with a very rich range of languages, instrumentation and voices.

The key to Children Beyond is participation. It is not just an album for listening; the goal is to get children and adults in contact with different religious traditions and through this way increase respect and tolerance. Therefore, the booklet that comes with the album contains lyrics and positions for each song, so it is easy to sing along. The message of each song is explained, there are songs for concentration, healing, celebration and calmness. Although the aim is to reach children, it can be very useful for adults as well. The layout is very well done, making it very attractive to give the singing a try!

Most of the songs are simple and involve a lot of repetition.
