From Tony Succar’s bio:
Assembling an exceptional production team and featured artists, Tony Succar has created The UNITY Project, a unique endeavor aimed at the minds, ears and hearts of a global audience. Pop legend Michael Jackson’s music and life philosophies heavily influenced Tony as a youngster and teenager, truly igniting his musical ideas and passion. The UNITY Project is the result: an innovative sound that interconnects elements of American Pop, Jazz, Tropical, and World Music with the enduring foundations of the King of Pop. The UNITY album will explode beyond mainstream media to appeal indefinitely to markets around the world.
Unity features more than 100 musicians, such Latin superstars as Tito Nieves, Jon Secada, and India, and the mixing magic of Jackson’s legendary engineer Bruce Swedien.
The mission of the UNITY Project is to honor the legacy of Michael Jackson, King of Pop, by remaining true to his artistic essence, excellence, and music. The UNITY Project seeks to unify all human beings’ hearts, talents, peoples and cultures to ensure that the imaginary barriers between people and countries shrink until—just as Michael Jackson envisioned—we all live harmoniously together.
