About

From paulmccartney.com, February 22, 2013:

War Child celebrates its 20th anniversary this year with the release of ‘War Child 20: Best Of’. The charity helps war affected children by providing medical care, creating safe havens and helping to rebuild schools. To mark the anniversary the charity was presented with the first Special Recognition Award at the BRIT Awards this week. Check out their video below.

Paul features on the album twice; firstly as part of the Smokin’ Mojo Filters with Paul Weller, Noel Gallagher, Steve Cradock, Steve White and Carleen Anderson performing ‘Come Together’ from the inaugural War Child album ‘Help’. Paul’s second track included on ‘War Child 20: Best Of’ is ‘Calico Skies’ which originally featured on the charity’s follow up album ‘Hope’.
