I received this message the other day on my Facebook page (copied by permission)
My daughter is a musician. We are a family of runners, (all 7 of us) who like all, were touched by the tragedy in Boston. In conjunction with her upcoming album release she'll be headed to Boston for a series of shows.
We put together a video tribute - with a song not on the album - as a possible way to raise funds for One Fund Boston. The idea is to donate 100% of our itunes proceeds from the single to the Fund from now through Labor Day. (essentially the end of the tour)
She'll be getting a bit of press so we thought we could incorporate this effort with any free media the tour might generate. We have not publicized this at all at this point. The video is on her site - but we've not promoted it. We wanted to get your feedback first.
It, along with her story, can be found atwww.courtneyjonesmusic.com
I was completely speechless. The video is amazing. I was touched that they would ask my opinion and that Courtney took the time to put all of this together...not to mention the absolutely amazing voice!! It was so cool to see some of those pics again, I received so many that I don't think I ever even got a chance to look at all of them.
I got in touch with Andrew (Courtney's dad), to let him know I would certainly do whatever I can do to support this. Anything at all.
That set the wheels in motion. Courtney's music team, including her producer - Boston's own Peter Malick - posted the video on YouTube, it can be found here -http://youtu.be/9ikjxTnyjoQ. Uploaded the single to iTunes - https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/enemy-fire-single/id672743034?uo=4 and is featured on her website www.courtneyjonesmusic.com
It's premiering here on the RunJunkees site and we'll be sharing it on our Facebook page. I hope you'll take a moment to visit and help support Courtney and her efforts here. Spread the word !
