6:47 pm
configuration that if we want to keep seeing it we need to preserve that configuration oh and you still see some of the original reeve closely i think that's important to have stuff which is really more than stuff which goes right not . now tell us about finding harmony which will be your new cd in the new year but it's actually much more than that is quite a project is not yet sort of a mission for us we see the incredible power of music to bring people together all over the world today we see it in paris after the burning of not should we see it in hong kong during the process we see and she recently we see it in moments like the me too movement in the times of movement in the us it happens all the time that music gives people a voice for they haven't had one or they feel they need one and we want to show that this has been happening for decades all over the world and that we need to encourage people to find their voices together because singing together not only binds us together but also gives us a chance to be and how you going to do this i mean obviously in your concerts are you going to be saying things they're all so the programs that will be performing

of camouflage that within the group sound just here on this mission. just briefly with finding what's happening in the day where you will come home is that part of the reason why your mission because you're a bit of disillusioned well yeah because i think we see with breaks that and we've had pieces written about this that is dividing families and dividing communities and actually we should be able to have different opinions and yet still tolerate each other and be unable to enjoy them. company and we see as we go toward all over the world you know being in china where we've got people with vastly different beliefs or and career and soul for instance where we have endured ambassadors and diplomats from both sides of political divisions coming to our concerts we see that music with your enjoying your singing it has it has a power to unite people and so we want to try and harness that yeah i completely agree with you i think it's a wonderful thing you're doing jonathan hound from the king sings thank you touring all over europe from now until christmas and then america in the new year or more
