Amnesty International is saluting a number of musicians for their contribution to human rights causes.  Musicians from different parts of the globe are often raising money for important causes with their music, either through recordings or live events.

76 new Bob Dylan songs in a 4 CD album have been contributed to benefit Amnesty International's human rights work.

50 artists have put together a collection of music also to raise money for human rights projects.  These artists include musicians like Carly Simon, Taj Mahal, Kris Kristofferson and Roseanne Cash among others.  The album is entitled Toast to Freedom.

“Amnesty should have their very own song to sing in happy times and in struggling times. To celebrate both small and monumental victories, to comfort loss and overcome pain, " says “Toast To Freedom” co-writer/co-producer Carl Carlton
