We Choose Peace
"With her new recording, 'We Choose Peace,' Tracy Friend establishes herself as a powerful voice in the Jewish community." - Craig Taubman "Tracy's music captures the rhythm of the Jewish soul and the melody of the universal yearning for peace." - Rabbi Karyn Kedar 'We Choose Peace' is a wonderful collection of inspirational songs on peace, prayer and possibility. Ranging from rock to rap and from folk to jazz, Tracy has the uncanny ability to capture the essence of our prayers, thoughts and dreams in her music. 'We Choose Peace' is a follow-up to Tracy's first CD, 'When All is Said and Done.' As she did with her first CD, Tracy will be donating a portion of the proceeds to organizations supporting peace in the Middle East. 'We Choose Peace' was produced by Stuart Rosenberg and recorded at Long Dog Studio in Skokie, IL.
