Songs After Sandy Albums Help Hurricane Victims Rebuild
Music has proven a great healer -- and fundraiser -- in the wake of devastating Hurricane Sandy.
Several communities in New York and New Jersey are still in desperate need of help to rebuild after October's deadly storms. So, Beautiful Day Media has teamed with three charitable initiatives -- Restore Red Hook, Occupy Sandy and Green Ground Zero -- to send funds to those in need through the sales of two compilation albums.
Songs After Sandy, Volumes 1 and 2, boast an eclectic mix of artists, from local New York acts to icons including Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Joe Walsh and Dave Stewart. "I have so many friends and workmates still struggling with the aftermath of Sandy," says Stewart. "I've seen their photos and heard their stories, and it's heartbreaking. I chose to donate my song 'Just a Matter of Time,' as it has a chorus affirming that time will heal but the verses resonate with the loss that has occurred in every way to the victims of Sandy."
