The Daily Mirror helped launch our Hope album to run alongside our Iraq appeal in 2003.

18 of the world’s top music stars – among them Sir Paul McCartney, Avril Lavignes, David Bowie, New Order, The Charlatans, Moby, Travis and George Michael contributed exclusive tracks to the album.

Whatever the politics, whatever the rights and wrongs of war, children are always the innocent victims so I am delighted to be able to make this small contribution to a magnificent project that I hope goes a long way to alleviating some of the pain and suffering

Sir Paul McCartney
