Synopsis: The Power of Music Few men, and even fewer entertainers, have impacted world events like the Colwell Brothers and Herb Allen. They played to cheering audiences across the globe, from intimate gatherings in the huts of remote villages to rock-star scale crowds at concert halls in great metropolises. They thrilled 90 million television viewers with their groundbreaking Up with People halftime spectacular at Super Bowl X. They met and performed for presidents, kings and prime ministers as well as everyday people in 60 countries on 6 continents. Their songs entertained, and challenged listeners to think, to see, to stand and make things better. Or sometimes, their music simply served to put things into perspective and help people laugh. They made it look easy to write songs on the road, rehearse them on the fly, and sing them in dialects and languages they had barely heard before. They never complained, though it took sacrifice, determination, and, most of all, courage. They literally walked away from their childhoods, comfort, careers and loved ones. They put it all on the line for something they believed. What they believed was that they could change the world. A Song for the World is the inside story, an up close and personal view of how they made things happen. It takes you around the planet and through half a century of historic, world shaping events that felt their influence. Through it all, the Colwell Brothers and Herb Allen relentlessly pursued the purpose of humanity. Their dedication and dreams touched the heart of a planet, set it beating to the rhythm of their music, and started its people marching to a greater vision of possibility. Such is the power of their music.

About the Author: Frank McGee has built a distinguished career as a writer and journalist over half a century. In the tumultuous 1960s he covered stories as far afield as Brail, Indonesia, and Viet Nam. As managig editor of Pace magazine, a contemporary of Life, Look, and Holiday, he worked with thought leaders from around the world. During the 1970 s, McGee launched and edited New Worlds, the signature magazine of California s Orange Coast. The University of California at Irvine tapped him to write the coffee table book commemorating the school s first twenty-five years. In the 80s and 90 s, he authored and edited books on a variety of topics that were published in a dozen languages. From hundreds of letters and documents, scores of interviews, and a five-decade friendship with the Colwell Brothers and Herb Allen, Frank McGee has brought to light the astounding story of A Song for the World. He lives with his wife in Tucson, Arizona.
