"I really believe in and respect Hemaa. Not only for the magnificent singer that she is, but the great human being that she is as well. I have worked with many talented artist in my career, but none with a heart the size of Hemaa's. Hemaa's sincere concern to make the world a better place to live in for all is not only echoed in her music but in her life's journey as a fighter for justice and equality. A voice for those whom the powers to be have attempted to silence. So it is with pride that I accepted the challenge to finally complete this historical project with her.
