"Tracks In The Sand," a (RED) Album for Africa, by Africa, Now Available on iTunes

We've introduced you to (PRODUCT) RED, the exemplary partnering initiative co-founded by Bono and Bobby Shriver to raise monies for the Global Fund to fight AIDS in Africa. [See November 2006 post, "Dec. 1 Marks World AIDS Day; (PRODUCT) RED Companies Continue the Global Fight Against AIDS."]. Now, we're pleased to inform you that GoodBiz113 ad partner iTunes is making "Tracks In The Sand," a compilation album presented by Vanity Fair and (RED), available for purchase in the U.S.

Inspired by Tom Freston's article, "Showtime In the Sahara," in this month's Bono-edited Africa issue of Vanity Fair, about traveling to an African music festival in Timbuktu, (RED) asked singer, bandleader, producer and philanthropist Youssou N'Dour, 47, a Senegal native, to curate "Tracks In The Sand." This iTunes compilation features 17 of the best recordings by West African artists -- including Salif Keita, Ali Farka Touré, Baaba Maal, and Oumou Sangare.

100% of the sales price of the "Tracks In The Sand" album will be contributed to the Global Fund, to help eliminate AIDS in Africa.

Buy "Tracks In The Sand" on iTunes now, and find out how your purchase can impact the lives of those affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa through the (RED) Impact Calculator!
