Some of the world's top musicians have banded together to push for the freedom of Burma's pro- democracy leader, Aung San Suu Kyi.
Paul McCartney and Eric Clapton, along with bands such as U2, Pearl Jam, Sting and Indigo girls, have together produced a set of 2 CDs dedicated to Aung San Suu Kyi.
Proceeds from the album, called `For the Lady,' will go to a non-profit group that seeks an end to the military dictatorship in Burma.
The group, U.S. Campaign for Burma, says that singing a freedom song in Burma can result in a minimum seven year prison sentence.
The album was announced a day after a resolution was introduced in the U.S. Senate seeking action in the U.N. Security Council against Burma's military regime.
The CDs are to be released in late October.
