Spirit of Africa is an AIDS initiative from the Mercury Phoenix Trust, the AIDS charity established by the remaining members of Queen and their manager Jim Beach in the wake of the death of Freddie Mercury. Since 1992 the Trust has been responsible for donating more than £7 million in the fight against the AIDS crisis to over 100 different charities around the world. Together with this album, the project is intended to focus global attention on the regions of the developing world where the needs for AIDS awareness and education is greatest.
