GIVE OUR GIFTS
On Saturday November 8th, the lead singers from 15 of some of the best local bands in Utah will be getting together to record a song that we hope will raise the awareness of children confined to hospitals over the Christmas holidays. The song is titled “Give Ourselves For Christmas” and was written by local musician, Michael E. Coones. The session will mark the first of it’s kind in Utah. Michael and the band he plays in, Danger Alley, hope this project will make a difference in the lives of a lot of children this holiday season. The event will be filmed for a video release on the internet and the song will be released as a single on iTunes with all proceeds going to The Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City.
The Christmas holidays are very special to children and many wonderful memories are made at this time of year. We are hoping we can do something for the unfortunate ones who will miss being home, among family and other loved ones on Christmas this year. We are hopeful this will remind others how grateful their lives are and get people to time and resources to visit these children and try to make their time there a bit less lonely.
Michael shared this when asked about the inspiration for a project of this big, “I got this idea from watching the ”We Are The World” video on youtube. That video touched my heart, and I realized that all of the local bands could do the same thing and make a difference in our own community here in Utah. We are all very excited about this project and our ability to use the musical gifts that we have been given to help others is truly wonderful.”
