"Peace Will Come" was sung by blind Georgian singer Diana Gurtskaya and represented Georgia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2008. It qualified from the second semi-final on 22 May 2008 at 7th and eventually finished in 11th place out of the twenty five countries that took part. It was written by Kim Breitburg and Karen Kavaleryan.

There have been calls to release this single across Europe to raise funds for the needy following the conflict in Abkhazia & South Ossetia.

When the song was performed at the Eurovision Song Contest 2008, Anri Jokhadze was one of the featured backing vocalists. Anri Jokhadze went on to represent Georgia as a solo artist in the Eurovision Song Contest 2012.[1]
