Seeds of Peace

On November 13, 17-year-old Israeli-born international singer Liel, who has performed with the likes of the Scorpions, Elton John and Bono, will join with Lebanese singer Shadi Nadaf, Lebanese-born pianist Giovanni, legendary producer and musician David Foster, and other musicians, for an unforgettable night of global music and entertainment. Hosted by Sharon Stone, the event will help raise funds for "Seeds of Peace," an internationally recognized program aimed at uniting children of conflict areas in the Middle East.

"I spent weeks this summer in a bomb shelter of Northern Israeli," Liel, who has lost a family member to violence in the region, said. "Enough is enough. Israeli and Lebanese kids like me were born into a conflict not of our making. Something has to change!"

Liel has kept good on that promise, pledging to work towards conciliation and co-existence among children in the Middle East and helping to raise millions of dollars in support of peace. She has recently decided to support Seeds of Peace, which brings together youths from several regions of conflict, including Israel, Palestine, Egypt, and Jordan to the United States to empower the next generation of leaders in the Middle East through training in conflict resolution and coexistence.

The event starts at 6:30 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles, California, and will also feature presentations by Arab and Israeli graduates of Seeds of Peace who will share their memories and experiences.

About Seeds of Peace:

Since 1993, Seeds of Peace has graduated over 3400 teenagers from four conflict regions from its internationally recognized leadership program. Through its International Camp in Maine, international youth conferences, regional workshops, educational and professional opportunities, and adult educator programs, participants develop empathy, respect, and confidence as well as leadership, communication and negotiation skills all critical components that will ensure peaceful coexistence for the next generation.

About Liel:

A 17-year-old kibbutz-born Israeli, Liel, considered a symbol of peace, is the recipient of two international awards and the official ambassador for two major international peace organizations: Seeds of Peace in the US, and Children of Peace in the UK. To date, she has held more than 300 concerts around the world and has performed with such superstars as Bill Clinton, Bono, Elton John, Brian Adams, Scorpions, Westlife, Pink, Andrea Bocelli, Jose Carreras, Richard Gere and soon, with Madonna.

Two months ago, during the war between Israel and Lebanon, Liel spent several weeks in Northern Israel, singing for children seeking shelter from the fighting. Liel also held several concerts in Israel and Canada raising more the one million dollars to help children touched by the war.
