New York's Allan Harris Performs 'I Do Believe' for 9/11 Benefit
Allan Harris will perform "I Do Believe" for the benefit of the first responders to the 9/11 tragedy on the 10th anniversary in New York in two separate appearances that day and evening. Harris' original song, "I Do Believe" is a rich and powerful song about America, the power of its people and the dreams that continue to keep the great nation's light shining throughout the world. Proceeds from iTunes downloads and the sale of the new CD "Open Up Your Mind" will go to the FealGood Foundation located in New York. The primary mission of the FealGood Foundation, a non-profit organization, is to spread awareness and educate the public about the catastrophic health effects on 9/11 first responders, as well as to provide assistance to relieve the great heroes of the financial burdens placed on them over the last ten years. A secondary goal of the FealGood Foundation is to create a network of advocacy on 911 healthcare issues. For more information on the foundation go to www.fealgoodfoundation.org
"I wrote 'I Do Believe' for America's working class heroes, and no one exemplifies working class heroes like our first responders," says Allan Harris.
On Sunday, September 11th, Harris will take to the main stage at the Somerville Jazz Festival at CourtHouse Green in Somerville, New Jersey at 2pm. Along with "I Do Believe" the musician described in the New York Times as a "pop-jazz singer as gifted as Nat King Cole," will perform songs off his new CD "Open Up Your Mind," (available September 13th) including "Can't Live My Life Without You," "Fly Me to the Moon" and "Hold You." All proceeds from iTunes downloads of "I Do Believe" through September 2011 will benefit the FealGood Foundation and the 9/11 first responders.
