The day after the September 11 tragedy, the documentary Web site CameraPlanet.com created a montage of New York rescue scenes and relief efforts and combined them with the Live song. The resulting video was aired repeatedly on VH1 beginning two days after the attack.

The powerful presentation overwhelmed nearly everyone who viewed it — not least of all members of Live, who had no foreknowledge of the video.

"My wife and I woke up, flipped on the TV and the video came on," recalled Live frontman Ed Kowalczyk. "I was shocked and overwhelmed by how striking the images of the rescue workers were. It was amazing."

"Music is a spiritual event and a means to realize freedom," explained Kowalczyk. "Individuals have to find a place to experience a profundity of feeling, and art is a means to that. I think musicians, artists and directors will come to that party and make sure people have the means of contemplating what's going on in the physical world."
