Via Jensen Communications Press Release: Los Angeles (June 10, 2020) – Legendary singer-songwriter Jesse Colin Young has teamed up with Song Aid Why Hunger to release an updated version of The Youngbloods’ 1969 hit song, “Get Together.” Featuring Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Steve Miller on electric guitar and background vocals, all proceeds from the song will help fight the global hunger crisis exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Get Together” will be available on all digital music and streaming services on Friday, June 19, and the song has already been premiered in a brand new video via Wall Street Journal. “‘Get Together’ is a song that heals, and it seems we are in great need of healing. It was a joy to record with Steve Miller and feel his enthusiasm for the project,” said Jesse Colin Young. “While ‘Get Together’ is food for the soul, there are so many of us, especially in this time, that are in need of food for the body. We chose WhyHunger as the beneficiary of all the proceeds so our communities can be fed. For those that can, please join us in helping to feed our neighbors by donating to this wonderful organization.”
Each time a fan listens to a SongAid song, the streaming proceeds will go to WhyHunger’s Rapid Response Fund. All proceeds will be used to expand WhyHunger's national Find Food Database, Texting service and Hotline connecting seniors, children, veterans, hourly workers and families impacted by hunger with free food and essential services, and to support frontline food pantries, small-scale farmers and food chain workers facing unprecedented risks and economic hardship during the COVID-19 crisis.
