Was really looking for update Waits but found this.

Peter Gabriel performs Tom Waits’ song “In the Neighborhood” as part of The Voice Project, a music based initiative to raise awareness and support for the war torn areas of Northern Uganda, Southern Sudan, Eastern Congo and CAR. Artists have been recording cover songs as links in musical chains that began with a small group of widows and rape survivors in Uganda. The women there have been using songs to send messages of forgiveness to those abducted and forced to fight, many of hide in the bush, afraid to return home.

The Voice Project employs this same idea of using music to pass the message as each artist covers another artist’ song creating a chain of melodies. Now Gabriel has passed it to Tom Waits.” “I’ve wanted to sing Tom Waits’ ‘In the Neighborhood’ for a long time and this was a great opportunity.” Gabriel explains. “I love the idea that a song can reach people that can’t be touched in any other way.”

I can't embed the link, so the link below has to be used:
