LISTEN is a collection of 15 original songs, written by children who stutter, and recorded by iconic artists including Carly Simon, Daryl Hall & John Oates, Duncan Sheik, John Forte, Mandy Patinkin and many others. In addition, Jon Bon Jovi donated the use of his studio, so that multiple tracks could be finished at his state-of-the-art facility. Superstars from the worlds of pop, rock, R&B, Broadway, hip-hop and more joined together to contribute their time and talents to a cause bigger than stuttering - a call for compassion and acceptance, and for respect of one-another's differences. In a world where everything - from news to conversations to decision-making - happens so fast that we can hardly catch our breath, LISTEN implores us to stop and do just that. Children who stutter are often ridiculed or ignored for not being able to express themselves quickly enough. They've finally been given a safe haven via Our Time.

Proceeds from album sales will benefit Our Time. Our Time is a non-profit organization centered on a one-of-a-kind arts program that provides children who stutter with an environment of unconditional acceptance...a creative forum, where they can express themselves through art, music, writing and theater, slowly and without risk of being shamed. Our Time is a free resource for these children and their families. There is no place quite like it.
