On 21 March 2009 Times Colonist reported: Paul Horn, acclaimed jazz musician from Victoria, British Columbia, will perform (including an improvisational flute solo) in the benefit concert 4 April at Radio City Music Hall in New York, with Sir Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Donovan, and others. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of culture.

'They should have held it in Madison Square Garden,' was Mr Horn's humorous comment, quoted in the Times Colonist (all the tickets sold out very quickly). The concert will also feature Ben Harper, Moby, Bettye Lavette, and Jim James.

In the article, Steve Yellin, the publicist for the concert, explained that it will raise funds for the David Lynch Foundation. More than 70,000 students have already learnt Transcendental Meditation (TM) around the world through the foundation, and many schools in the United States are now applying. The goal is to offer the programme to one million children.

The Times Colonist article said that the Grammy award-winning flautist, nearly 80, 'who has recorded more than 40 albums . . . and worked with everyone from Frank Sinatra and Duke Ellington to Nat King Cole', has no qualms about playing with the younger musicians at the concert. The event will be a reunion with musicians (Paul McCartney, Ringo, and Donovan) he recalled being with many years ago while studying Transcendental Meditation with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in India.

Mr Horn praised the foundation's programme, describing it as 'an ambitious project' that will 'help reduce stress and bullying, and increase creativity and health', the article quoted him as saying. 'I'm doing this because I value TM. It has immeasurably affected everything in my life and is a reflection of who I am, my music.'

Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
