Desire for Peace



"Desire for Peace" is a song calling for peace in the world, and it's a brief description of what King Swazi describes as his ideal utopia.

King Swazi is a multitalented artist from the East Side of Chicago. He's a visual artist, singer, lyricist, poet and actor. His desire is to inspire people through the many forms of art that he creates. He believes that while we are living, we can be great at everything we wish to achieve.
