(E) Harry Potter and We are Family
Dear All, 
I am happy to share two personal accomplishments TODAY. I worked on Harry 
Potter ( Warner Brothers/One Voice) as an analyst, reviewer, advisor on 
Croatian language for Literary & Film projects for the first four books of 
Harry Potter, during the last year. But today, November 16th, 2001, is the 
premier of the first film, so it feels good. 
Also, I participated in the recordings of We Are Family CD and scored (wrote 
music) for the one hour TV special of "The Making and Meaning of We Are 
Family." CD is on sale worldwide. Globalvision is still working on DVD that 
will include the film that is directed by Danny Schechter. 
Charm comes in three and I hope that I will sign another contract today, that 
is in progress for some time. Keep fingers crossed. Don't ask how I do all of 
this (that is the most asked question). 
I don't know either. My family do. 
Nenad Bach 
WE ARE FAMILY is an expression of concern and a celebration of our common 
humanity. It is not political. It takes no stands except one: Our world 
culture needs to hear more voices of tolerance and to insure that prejudice, 
racism and blind revenge should never become an acceptable action, and should 
not now be an accepted response. 
Our country is in pain. Many have lost friends, family, and a part of a city 
they loved. We know that everyone wants to help, and millions of dollars are 
being raised for relief and recovery. 
Yet, individuals are suffering losses that money can never replace. Our 
society needs relief too. We need inspiration and unifying messages to help 
heal a stunned and traumatized nation that, in its best moments, has shown 
the beautiful ways people can help and love each other. It is time for all of 
us who treasure our most fundamental American ideals to do everything 
possible to promote tolerance. The obligation and responsibility of 
patriotism is not just to defend our country from outside enemies but also to 
ensure our principles are not challenged or compromised from within. 
Like justice, debate and free expression, diversity and freedom of religion 
are also values we must defend. We need to hear each other and not demonize 
each other. 
On Saturday, September 22, 2001, in response to the devastating attack on New 
York, Washington, DC and Pennsylvania, over 150 celebrities came together in 
unity and strength of purpose to re-record the Sister Sledge classic "We Are 
Family." The song is a celebration of our common humanity, a theme song to 
unite our nation and the world. This celebrity version includes performances 
by Diana Ross, Patti LaBelle, Luther Vandross, Roberta Flack, Ashford & 
Simpson, Dionne Warwick and many other top singers, actors and sports 
figures. It was produced by Nile Rodgers and co-executive produced by Tom 
Silverman for Tommy Boy Music and SumThing Else Musicworks. Spike Lee shot 
the music video and there will be a one-hour documentary available soon. 
The WE ARE FAMILY PROJECT DONATES proceeds from the sale of the record to 
well run, non-profit relief, educational, legal defense and tolerance 
promoting activism. Funds will be shared by The American Red Cross and the 
Cantor-Fitzgerald Relief Fund. For more information, contact: 
To learn more about the worthwhile organizations below, check out each 
group's website. Get involved and help spread the message of compassion, 
caring, and tolerance.

The new release is available on CD and can be purchased at CDNOW. You can 
also purchase the download from our friends at Liquid Audio. Either way, it's 
a great way to contribute and get a historical recording in return!
