Singer/Songwriter Aliza Hava Releases Powerful Peace Anthem for Mother’s Day, Inspired by Julia Ward Howe’s Proclamation


Award-winning singer-songwriter Aliza Hava has released a soul-stirring peace anthem just in time for Mother's Day. The song is a heartfelt tribute to the timeless call for peace embodied in Julia Ward Howe's historic Mother's Day Proclamation. With haunting melodies and poignant lyrics, Hava's latest composition transcends time, echoing Howe's message while addressing the urgent need for peace in today's world.

Penned in 1870, Howe's proclamation was a passionate "appeal to womanhood throughout the world" for peace and disarmament in the aftermath of the Civil War. Howe's vision of Mother's Day as a day for women to come together to advocate for peace laid the groundwork for the modern holiday we celebrate today.


Mother's Day as we know it was later championed by Anna Jarvis in the early 20th century as a way to honor the sacrifices of mothers and promote peace. However, as the holiday became increasingly commercialized, its original purpose became overshadowed.


Through her music, Aliza Hava seeks to reignite the spirit that defined the early days of Mother's Day, offering a timely reminder of the importance of unity in a world plagued by division.

As an artist who has served as a representative and ambassador for several UN-related peacebuilding initiatives, Aliza brings a unique perspective to her music, blending her passion for peace and healing with her gift for crafting insightful and thought-provoking melodies.


By channeling the spirit of Julia Ward Howe's Proclamation, she invites listeners to reflect on the true meaning of Mother's Day and join together in the pursuit of peace.
