*At the Beijing press conference Jimmy was presented with the first ever United Nations’ Pathways to Peace award by Michael Johnson of the UN.

“We’ve been asked to give awards over the years but never have done so until this day,” said Michael Johnson “We’re doing this because musicians have a global impact on the world, and we also know that people who use their name and fame for peace building need to be honored.”

“Although this award has my name on it,” Jimmy said “this is a tribute to the power of music and its positive effect. Music has been the most powerful language to reach the hearts of people around the world. During my career, I’ve experienced the connection and harmony that music can bring.”
