Andy Griggs’ New Song ’20 Little Angels’ Honors the Children of Sandy Hook Elementary [AUDIO]
When I first learned of what was happening at an elementary school in Connecticut, I was numb. I didn't know what to say and my heart felt like it was being jerked out of my chest, I felt for everyone there. To this day, I still don't know the words that could ever express my condolences. Today I just heard a song that had me in tears, a song that said what I've been feeling. The song moved me so much that I wanted to share it with you. The best part is, Andy Griggs is donating 100% of the proceeds to the Sandy Hook Fund. Now grab a tissue and give it a listen.
After seeing what we all saw unfold on TV, Andy Griggs called a co-writing friend and put together a song I think, is an awesome way to honor the children and teachers at Sandy Hook. Once the song was recorded and finished, Andy got on his Facebook and posted the following:
Okay, do you remember a couple of weeks ago when the terrible shooting took place in Connecticut, and we all mourned and grieved together on Facebook? A lot of us were asking ourselves, "What can we do?". As my arms were thrown up to the sky with so many question marks, a lot of you had ideas about me writing a song and somehow aiming it towards some kind of charity or foundation that would go to the families. Well, you inspired me! I called my friend, Bobby Pinson the next day. We sat down and wrote what I thought would be a completely awkward song. It was the exact opposite! It came out better than anything I could've imagined. I guess through our conversations over Facebook, we all came up with something that was meant to be. When Bobby and I finished writing the song, we both had tears in our eyes and knew that it needed to be released.
I ask that you close your eyes and decide from your heart and soul if you’re feeling the same thing I am. If you are, you can help. Next week the song will be available on iTunes. with 100% of the proceeds going straight to the Sandy Hook Support Fund. As a matter of fact, there are no fees that iTunes will be keeping and all credit card companies have waived off the same.’
