Herbie and the famed jazz saxophonist Wayne Shorter have composed an original piece for the event and will be accompanied by Vinnie Colaiuta, Nathan East and the UCLA Wind Orchestra. Hancock remarks on the ICAP's mission to promote world peace through the arts: "The arts have always served relationships between people of different cultures so well. In a way, the arts function as a very serious kind of ambassador. An organization like ICAP, with determined spirit, working toward world peace, can be a very powerful message and shows action in doing what many political figures cannot for peace."
