FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Atlanta GA, For Immediate Release – Local Atlanta band Water to Wine is releasing a new song to benefit Piedmont Hospital and support the individuals who are currently working on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic. “Hero” will be released online on May 1 at 8 pm EST with a video premiere on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzqdehGesVRvr6mr7S7uktQ and Facebook https://www.facebook.com/watertovino/. The song will then be made available on popular streaming platforms.
In these challenging times, the members of Water to Wine wanted to do their part in supporting the efforts to flatten the curve. That includes celebrating the people who are continuing to work to ensure that our communities have the food, supplies, and healthcare we need right now.
This is an uncertain time and everyone is affected. Bandleader, Matt Russom, was watching the daily updates for COVID-19 when it occurred to him that he and his wife could use their talent to help.
“We feel helpless to offer anything great,” Russom said. “But for now, and at least in some small way, this song may bring a smile. It may even encourage someone to tell a janitor thank you for what they are doing to keep the hospital open.”
Russom says that his goal in releasing “Hero” is to leave a person feeling uplifted, compassionate, and more united than before they hit play.
“Hero” was written to pay tribute to all of the frontline workers, but especially to honor those that are often undermentioned. The lyrics of the song are meant to express the feelings of gratitude that our society often forgets to.
“So to the grocery store worker, the doctor, the nurse, the janitor, the truck driver, and all those that are keeping our communities safe and going, we appreciate you,” expressed Russom.
“Hero” will be released on May 1, and will be free to enjoy. Water to Wine is releasing the song for free in order to encourage you to donate to Piedmont Healthcare. Piedmont Healthcare is currently leading the fight against COVID-19 in the metro Atlanta area. When you choose to donate a mask, you are giving the workers on the frontline an extra line of defense against COVID-19. When you choose to give more, you are helping give Piedmont Healthcare the supplies they need to continue in this fight. Visit https://watertowineband.com/ to learn how to donate and help out.
