The famous artists include Ozark Henry, Karmin, Joss Stone, Jack Atlantis, Tisha Campbell, Steve London and Lee England.

Sammy Chand, who owns Rukus Avenue said all proceeds will go to the United Nations Voluntary Trust Fund for victims of trafficking in persons.

The album, which was launched at UN Office in New York, will be available online on Friday at iTunes, Amazon and Google play.
