Music for the Mission recording “We Are One” to help feed and shelter the homeless across Upstate New York and Northern Pennsylvania.
“We Are One” is a Music for the Mission musical collaboration of over 40 musicians and vocalists. Written by multi-gold record songwriter Bob Halligan, Jr. of Ceili Rain, “We Are One” is an incredible song that tells the heartfelt story of how one person can make a difference in the lives of one and many.
The song is in progress in the recording studio, and Subcat Studios of Syracuse, NY, has donated all of the studio time to allow the collaboration to unfold on a highly professional sound and engineering level. Release of the song is anticipated in Spring 2018, with final touches on the recording itself now underway.
The goal is to use music as Music for the Mission always does, to raise awareness and money to help feed and shelter the homeless across Upstate New York and Northern Pennsylvania, where founder, Joe Stanley of Stanley Law hails from. “It’s always been our mission to help one person at a time through a love of mine and so many, that of music. You get to enjoy and be entertained through music, while doing a good thing at the same time. What could be better?” said Stanley.
Music for the Mission was founded nearly ten years ago by attorney Stanley. It raises money and awareness for the hungry and homeless and funnels the money predominantly through what are called “mini-grants” to those organizations who have the resources and are on the frontlines of feeding and sheltering those in need.
“We all need inspiration in our lives during a time in our world where much of what we read in the news is about terror or loss or anger or fear,” added Angela Moonan, “We Are One” project coordinator and corporate coach and storyteller for Music for the Mission and Stanley Law. “To bring these many local musicians together, often singing in unison, with such powerful lyrics, melodies, and harmonies, is not only that boost of inspiration for the public, it also provides incredibly deep meaning and connection to the musicians involved who want to contribute and make a difference. I for one am incredibly proud to be a part of it and to collaborate with this caliber of musicianship. To have Bob Halligan, Jr write and produce this song for us, well, it’s an absolute dream come true.”
“We Are One” will be available ultimately through Amazon and iTunes for .99 cents per download and featured on air and at events through many of Stanley Law’s media partners -- radio, television, cable and digital marketing outlets.
