Quincy Jones has thrown his weight behind a project in Rabat, Morocco, that will see him produce some of the biggest names in Arab music on a charity single.

The legendary producer has been working on an Arabic version of his song, Tomorrow (A Better You, A Better Me), with stars such as Lebanon’s Majida El Roumi, Iraq’s UNICEF ambassador Kadhum Al-Sahir, Tunisia’s Saber El Rebai, Egypt’s Amr Diab and Morocco’s Asthma Lmnawar.

Money from the song – titled Bokra – will go to projects for children and educational arts and culture scholarships in the Middle East and North Africa.

“I have long been a vocal proponent of music and the arts being a great asset in building bridges between people and cultures,” said Quincy. “I believe that given a choice, people want to live in a world of peace and prosperity, and it is my hope that this song will serve as a clarion call for the people of the Middle East and North Africa who share that desire for peace, hope, unity and a better tomorrow to come together to achieve that dream.”
