Daniel Pearl Music Day


On February 21, 2002, the world learned that kidnapped Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl had been brutally murdered by his captors in Pakistan. After Danny's funeral in August 2002, in the spirit of his love for music, his family decided to inspire hope and unity by inviting people everywhere to dedicate a musical event on the day he would have turned 39 years old - October 10, 2002. Thus started Daniel Pearl World Music Day - which reminds the world of the principles by which Danny lived, the universal power of music and our shared humanity.
