Music :: Give US Your Poor
From Appleseed Recordings: a multi-artist fund-raising project for the homeless, Give US Your Poor, is now available, containing 17 new recordings by Springsteen and Seeger (a second collaboration), Jon Bon Jovi, Natalie Merchant, Sonya Kitchell, Madeleine Peyroux, Keb’ Mo’ and Bonnie Raitt, among others – many of them paired with currently or previously homeless musicians. The majority of the profits raised by Give US Your Poor will be spent, on the national level, in pushing for legislation and awareness/action programs designed to stem the growing crisis of homelessness, and, on the local level, to fund homeless shelters. All of the professional musicians involved donated their time and are waiving artists’ royalties for contributions. For more information, visit Give Us Your Poor or Appleseed Recordings.
