Yuna Ito - Gate (OST)

I wanna share this wonderful song with everyone.

"YUNA ITO x TAKESHI KOBAYASHI x MIKHAIL PLETNEV (U.S. / Japan / Russia) come together to record "GATE". For the movie "GATE" and SOUNDTRACK. All volunteered, and All proceeds go toward dismantling nuclear weapons. www.GNDFund.org"

"Almost 60 years ago a flame was kindled from the embers of the City of Hiroshima after the world’s first atomic bomb was dropped on a civilian population in hopes of ending World War II. Three days later, a second Atomic Bomb was dropped on the civilian population of the only Christian City in Japan, Nagasaki. The flame still burns today and has become a symbol of hope for peace and a reminder that nuclear weapons must never again be used on civilian populations.

For decades Buddhist Monks have walked endlessly between Hiroshima and Nagasaki in the belief that their selfless sacrifice and prayers for peace will make Nagasaki the last city in the world ever to know the horrors of Nuclear War.This time they were joined by Native Americans, Veterans, and peace groups of all faiths for their final 1600 mile journey across deserts, over mountain ranges and through more than 250 communities as they walked from San Francisco to the Trinity Test Site in New Mexico, location of the first Atomic Bomb detonation. Once returned to its origin, the flame that has been kept for 60 years was extinguished. A docudrama is now being made to commemorate these important events."

Original soundtrack available on MileHigh Jukebox® on the right.

Yuna Ito is a Japanese singer with beautiful voice. Her father is Japanese and mother is Korean-American. There was very sad time before our time. Yes, it was war.
Now,she sings the peace song "Gate". I'm touched. I can listen to this from your music box. Thank you!
