On the day following the tragedies in Newtown, CT, 46 students from the Creative Planet School of the Arts harmonized onstage with the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles. Together, they performed "Peace on Earth" and "Little Drummer Boy," dedicating their performance to the families in Newtown and to everyone whose lives have forever been changed by violence.

"Music has a way of speaking to people that spoken words do not," said Christopher Verdugo, Executive Director of GMCLA, "and we felt that dedicating this video to the victims of Newtown was the only way to express our sorrow, grief and thoughts of hope."
The "Peace on Earth" tribute was recorded live on December 15, 2012. It was arranged by Bill Bowersock and conducted by GMCLA Artistic Director E. Jason Armstrong. Lucio Maramba mastered the audio and James Roman filmed the video.
