Daughtry has teamed up with the Justice League and DC Entertainment to release the newly recorded acoustic rendition of the band’s original song “Rescue Me” to benefit the “We Can be Heroes” campaign to end hunger in the Horn of Africa.
On sale today and available exclusively on iTunes at http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/rescue-me-benefiting-we-can/id543709698?ls, all net proceeds from “Rescue Me” go directly to provide relief in the region.
“You don’t need to be a super hero to help make a difference and be part of the greater good,” says lead singer Chris Daughtry. “The people in the Horn of Africa need us and every little bit helps, it’s as easy as downloading a song. If you’ve ever wanted to be super hero — now’s your chance.”
“Rescue Me,”from Daughtry’s 19 Recordings/RCA Records gold-certified release Break The Spell, debuted today exclusively on iTunes with all net proceeds from this new release being donated to the campaign. This debut follows on the heels of the DC Entertainment announcement that Daughtry will act as an ambassador for the campaign and he has been performing the song nightly during his global summer concert tour.
“The mission of ‘We Can be Heroes’ is to raise awareness for and support of the over eight million people in need of immediate assistance in the Horn of Africa,” says Diane Nelson, President of DC Entertainment. “Daughtry’s iTunes release of this new version of ‘Rescue Me’ will provide support and donations for three incredible humanitarian aid organizations that are helping fight this hunger crisis in the Horn. We are so thankful that Chris has joined us in this important cause.”
