With many of Rodgers' friends on hand (Patti LaBelle, Diana Ross, Luther Vandross, Dionne Warwick, Angelique Kidjo, Little Steven, etc.) the message of familial connectedness of all people goes global. The single has just been released to be followed by a January release of an album including the single plus a number of remixes. All royalties from the album will also go to charities.

A FAMILY SITUATION: rap

Madness!
Terror makes a fist from a kiss
Genocide call it what you will
Dogma a crutch that make the blood spill
Now the eagle flies
With a bomb in its beak
The terror shriek the goo of news-speak
Nine One One Oh One
Hate like a cloud covers the sun
The futures begun
We won, we won were free!
Cause were a family
