A cover version of a Quincy Jones classic
Seeing the plight of thousands of refugees trying at all costs to reach Europe, John Aram wanted to do what he could to help. Bringing together a team of well known musicians he has recorded a cover version of « Tomorrow (A Better You, A Better Me) » by the most Grammy-award nominated artist of all time, Quincy Jones, who has given his personal endorsement to the project.

Jacob Collier and Ecolint students
The lead vocal is performed by Jacob Collier, whom the British newspaper The Guardian called “jazz’s new messiah”. Jacob is accompanied by celebrated Swiss-American rap artist Rootwords, as well as by a choir composed of 90 Ecolint students, aged 9-11 years old, from the three campuses of the International School of Geneva. 

Renowned musicians

Some of the UK’s best session musicians have contributed to this project, including jazz pianist Jason Rebello who has played alongside Sting, Peter Gabriel, Joss Stone, Madeleine Peyroux and Manu Katche. The song was recorded and mixed in Geneva by award-winning producer Yvan Bing (Coldplay, Billy Joel, Gwen Stefani) and a music video by Ecolint student Joe Cook adds the finishing touch to this musical project.
