Yusuf Islam, formerly known by his stage name Cat Stevens (born Steven Demetre Georgiou on 21 July 1948 in London, UK), is an English musician, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, educator, philanthropist and prominent convert to Islam.

As "Cat Stevens," Islam has sold over 60 million albums around the world since the late 1960s. His albums Tea for the Tillerman and Teaser and the Firecat were both certified by the RIAA as having achieved Triple Platinum status in the United States. His songwriting has also earned him two ASCAP songwriting awards (for "The First Cut Is the Deepest," which has been a hit single for four different artists.)

Stevens converted to Islam at the height of his fame in 1977. The following year, he adopted his Islamic name Yusuf Islam and left his music career to devote himself to educational and philanthropic causes in the Muslim community. In 2006, he returned to pop music, with his first album of new pop songs in 28 years, entitled An Other Cup.

He has been given several awards for his work in promoting peace in the world, including the 2004 Man for Peace award and the 2007 Mediterranean Prize for Peace. He lives with his wife, Fauzia Mubarak Ali, and five children in Brondesbury Park, London, and spends part of each year in Dubai.


Pete Seeger with an Indian twist. Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram performed by Mr. Pete Seeger at The Academy of Fine Arts, Calcutta, India, circa 1963.



Pete Seeger performs at age 94 "This Land is Your Land" with Farm Aid board artists John Mellencamp, Willie Nelson, Dave Matthews and Neil Young live at the Farm Aid concert in Saratoga Springs, NY on September 21, 2013. Farm Aid was started by Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp in 1985 to keep family farmers on the land and has worked since then to make sure everyone has access to good food from family farmers. Dave Matthews joined Farm Aid's board of directors in 2001. This Land was written by Woody Gutrie in 1940.

For more information about Farm Aid, visit:

Farm Aid's performances are donated by the artists in order to raise funds and raise awareness for family farmers.



If I Had A Hammer was written by Pete Seeger and Lee Hays in 1949 in support of the progressive movement, but later became a beloved freedom song of the American Civil Rights movement. Pete had a fascinating history and lived a noble life:

Live at Wolftrap, August 8, 1993. Arlo Guthrie, Pete and family perform Pete's song with Pete leading the audience.

'When I've got a hammer, and I've got a bell
And I've got a song to sing all over this land
It's a hammer of justice, it's a bell of freedom
It's a song about love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land'



Original song and video, "The Time Has Come", celebrates the extraordinary actions taken by ordinary citizens in the fight for climate justice. The song's lyrics invite the viewer to join the growing climate justice movement on behalf of future generations.

Capilla Flamenca takes early music to the souls of people today.
Documentary by YVES GERVAIS.

This short documentary film presents Capilla Flamenca, ensemble for Franco-Flemish polyphonic music from 1350 until 1600, in four video clips and two television broadcast clips. Artistic director Dirk Snellings explains how Capilla Flamenca succeeds in brushing the dust off music that was composed about 500 years ago, not by popularising the compositions, but by integrating this early music in every which way in our modern society. People today are very often 'touched' by music in the same way as people were in the fifteenth century.

Composed by world famous Franco-Flemish composers such as: Josquin Desprez, Alexander Agricola, Heinrich Isaac, Pierre de La Rue, Guillaume de Machaut, Bernard de Cluny a.o.

The ensemble Capilla Flamenca:
Marnix De Cat, countertenor | Tore Denys, tenor | Lieven Termont, baritone | Dirk Snellings, bass | Liam Fennelly, Thomas Baeté, Piet Stryckers, viola da gamba | Jan Van Outryve, lute | Patrick Denecker, recorders.


Saint Paul Cathedral Choir sings 'For the Beauty of the Earth'. By Folliott S. Pierpoint, 1864.

For the beauty of the earth,
for the beauty of the skies,
for the love which from our birth
over and around us lies...

For lyrics:


The Piano Guys' version of "Angels We Have Heard on High," with a few other Christmas favorites mixed in.

ALL the sounds you hear were created by different parts of the piano (except the vocals of course).

Arrangement written and produced by Jon Schmidt, Al van der Beek & Steven Sharp Nelson. The Piano Guys: Paul Anderson, Jon Schmidt, Al van der Beek & Steven Sharp Nelson.



What do you get when you mix up a marketing genius that does video, a studio engineer that writes music, a pianist that had a successful solo career, and a cellist that does pretty much everything? The Piano Guys: a miraculous meeting of “guys” with the same intrinsic purpose – to make a positive impact in the lives of people all over the world through music videos.

Filmed at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - Jerusalem Movie Set.
