On October 29, 2012 a massive and unprecedented, "perfect storm" hit the East Coast of the U.S.A.
People living near the coast were forced to flee and within hours millions were without power and basic services in one of the most populated areas of North America. The effects lasted weeks and even today the recovery effort continues. Many have lost everything. There is no flood insurance available if you live near the ocean.
This song was inspired by the steely determination of Americans that have endured some of the biggest challenges ever to face their country. Mother Nature, economics and terrorism have touched everyone in the U.S. in the last decade but has not weakened their resolve to rebuild.
In early November TheMightyOne had the opportunity to spend a creative evening with a young Canadian folk singer just after Hurricane Sandy to co-create "Bring It On". Initially the plan was to write a Christmas type song however it was quickly apparent that the unfolding story of the hurricane needed to be paramount. TheMightyOne and Daniel Moir dedicate this song to anyone who is facing the powerful waves of change that are all around us, and without fear, stare them down and say...Bring It On.
This song is available by donation. All proceeds will support the American Red Cross' ongoing efforts to those in need.
Happy Holidays from TheMightyOne and Daniel Moir and please give generously.
