Peter Gabriel, George Clooney, Alicia Keys, Richard Branson and Kofi Annan support hip-hop star Emmanuel Jal, a former child csoldier who manged to get out, in raising awareness for the Sudanese Referendum on 9th January 2011. On this day the citizens of Southern Sudan and Abyei, as promised by the Comprehensive Peace Agreement, will participate in referenda that will determine the fate of Sudan. Peter Gabriel:

I have been horrified at the reports of the potential for civil war in the Sudan after the election. Emmanuel Jal is an inspiring and charismatic young musician and, considering most of the fighting in these wars is actually carried out by young people, I believe Emmanuel's impassioned campaign for peace will be much more likely to reach them.
