Following the unexpected global success of Words For You, a unique album of classic poems, read by British actors and set to classical music, this follow-up album features a host of both British and Hollywood actors, including Meryl Streep, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jim Broadbent, James Earl Jones, Helena Bonham Carter, Terrence Stamp and Rupert Penny Jones. Selling over 200,000 copies in the UK alone and raising over £50,000 for "I CAN", the children’s communication charity, helping all children develop speech, language and communication skills, the original Words For You was an instant success, taking the number one spot on the compilation chart and becoming one of the biggest selling albums of 2009.
