Immigrant children torn apart from their families at the border still need our help!! Our hearts ache over what’s STILL happening - which is why we are honored that our song “We All Shine” is part of Hold Tight, Shine Bright, a project started by fellow family musicians Lucky Diaz and The Family Jam Band, Andrew and Polly and Mista Cookie Jar. The album was released Friday 8/31/2018 and is available on iTunes and features songs from more than 20 kindie musicians and bands. All proceeds benefit RAICES Texas, an organization that supports legal services for families separated at the border.
We hope you'll join us in supporting this cause! Every little bit helps and together we can make a difference. Please share and enjoy this beautiful, uplifting and excellent music! #holdtightshinebright #raices #familiesbelongtogether #ReuniteEveryChild #weallshine
Here’s more about the project:
Responding to the plight of thousands of immigrant and refugee children who are still being held in federal detention centers around the country, 33 of the top artists in family music have banded together to create Hold Tight, Shine Bright, a compilation album of 27 songs with a basic goal in mind—the preservation and promotion of love, hope and family. Hold Tight, Shine Bright will be available on August 31 via iTunes. All Proceeds of this album will benefit the legal aid initiatives of RAICES Texas.
The dozens of children’s musicians, artists, collaborators, and contributors on this album believe that families seeking refuge in the United States of America need to remain together. The compilation album was produced this summer by The Hold Tight Shine Bright Project: Lucky Diaz and Alisha Gaddis (Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band), Polly Hall and Andrew Barkan (Andrew and Polly), and CJ Pizarro (Mista Cookie Jar), along with Dale Edward Chung. Album art is by Micah Player (Lately Lily).
