Mumbai: Paying tribute to the victims of terror attacks worldwide, music composer Aadesh Srivastava Saturday launched a music album `Sounds of Peace` in collaboration with actor Amitabh Bachchan and international singer Akon.

"During 26/11, I had lost two dear friends. Through this music album and a concert, we intend to help the families of those policemen who have suffered at the hands of terrorism," Aadesh told reporters after launching the album at suburban Andheri here.

Big B has lent his baritone voice for the album.

International artists like Akon, Wyclef Jean, Pamela Lajoie, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Indian singers like Shaan, Roopkumar Rathod, Aadesh Shrivastava, Netsurf Entertainment and others are also part of this album.

"With the natural disaster in Haiti and terrorist attacks world wide, this is the least we can do to support the families," Wyclef Jean said in a video message on the occasion.

Also, a cheque of Rs ten lakh was given to Maharashtra Police for their profound courage and commitment extended during the 26/11 attacks.

A concert has been planned for January 2012 in Mumbai where all those who are part of this album will perform live and the proceeds from the show will go to the families of policemen who laid down their lives fighting terrorism.
