Spread the Love: A Fund for Boston
In light of the violence that befell the good people in Boston, Kenny Chesney has agreed to donate proceeds from his single “Spread the Love” (ft. yours truly and the Wailers) to the Spread the Love: A Fund for Boston campaign. The money will go towards paying for prosthetics and post-acute care needed by Boston Marathon bombing victims. It was a pleasure just working alongside Kenny, but this just adds a a whole other depth to the power of music. When asked why he was doing what he was doing, he cooly said:
“Music can be healing. When you’re at your lowest, it can inspire – the way these athletes, their friends, family and the city of Boston inspire me. I want to give back to the ones who need it, but also to heal all of us a little bit. So, spread the love.”
Irie, no? Doing good deeds doesn’t just benefit others, it also rewards the person doing the good deed. There’s definitely too much for-self going on in the world today. We should all strive for a little less self and more selfless. Alright, that’s enough out of me. It’s starting to feel like an episode of Doogie Howser. Spread the love and buy the track on iTunes and you can listen to it on Spotify.
