Singer and songwriter John Denver (1943-1997) was one of the most popular performing artists of the 1970's. In the ninth 'Now you Know Bio' from Filter Press, author John Stansfield tells how Denver used his musical talents to make the world a better place.
John Denver believed, "Music does bring people together. It allows us to experience the same emotions. No matter what language we speak, what color we are, the form of our politics, or the expression of our love and faith, music proves we are the same."
