“All Come Together” now available for download via iTunes and Amazon.
Great musicians recently gathered in Nashville for a great cause, as artists from the worlds of country, rock, blues, bluegrass and gospel banded together to record “All Come Together,” a new song penned by country star John Berry and award-winning songwriter Chuck Jones to aid victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
The song currently is available for download via iTunes and Amazon, with all proceeds from sales going to storm victims through Samaritan’s Purse, a Christian-based relief organization that now also is collecting funds for victims of Hurricane Maria.
“Chuck and I got together to write,” says Berry, “and after seeing the destruction on television we came up with the idea for ‘All Come Together.’ Everybody feels like they want to help in some way. We just want to bring attention to the cause, and all come together and help. There are a lot of people who are going to need help for a long time. This isn't a two-week fix. We hope people will donate to Samaritan's Purse to help the cause. Here's your challenge to help.”
After co-writing the song, Berry asked friends to join in and help sing on the tune. He quickly recruited a slew of artists who were more than happy to donate their time and talents. “All Come Together” features vocals from Berry and Jones, John Oates (of Hall & Oates), John Cowan (Doobie Brothers), Keb Mo, Heidi Newfield (Trick Pony), Dave Innis and Paul Gregg (Restless Heart), Casey James (American Idol), Collin Raye, Bryan White, Robin Berry, Mike Farris, and Darin and Brooke Aldridge.
“I know that people in Texas and Florida still need help rebuilding their lives,” says Berry. “My hope is that through this song and video people will continue to be encouraged to reach out to those that have been affected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. Samaritan’s Purse gives people the opportunity to help by either volunteering their time or through financial giving. In a time when our country seems so divided, we have a unique opportunity to all come together and do our part to help our fellow Americans rebuild their lives.”
