War Child: Heroes


I can not encourage everyone enough to get a copy of War Child: Heroes. The concept is simple: One musician picked another to cover one of their songs. That's it. A portion of the proceeds goes to War Child, a charity that provides humanitarian assistance to children in devastated regions.

Even better is that Amazon has the mp3 version of the album on sale this week for $3.99. It's an amazing deal and a good cause.
