Local Artist Recognized for Contribution to Tucson Tragedy Charity
Singer/songwriter Cary Jaymes (Scottsdale, AZ) was humbly honored that his song Stand Together was utilized in the promotion of the recent benefit concert for the shooting victims of the January 8, 2011 shooting in Tucson.
The Fund for Civility, Respect and Understanding was launched by Ron Barber, a Giffords aide wounded in the shooting and featured headliners such as Alice Cooper and Jackson Brown at the Tucson Convention Center on March 10, 2011.
The song Stand Together, which promotes solidarity and peace, echos the feeling of the Quincy Jones' 1984 hit We Are the World. With Stand Together, Cary Jaymes is looking to bring America together and stand in solidarity to help others less fortunate and in need of our strength, which was exactly the benefit concert's goal.
Jaymes comments; “The sound of the concert amplifiers and crowd cheers are faded, but the need for our understanding and support is there each and every day.”
Jaymes and his producer Kevin Stratton, flattered by the media interpretation of his concept that went to aiding the victims of the Tucson shootings, believes a country as blessed as America has a duty to set an example.
In the wake of such international events such as the recent earthquakes in Japan and the out pouring of support for the incalculable loss and need there, Jaymes' battle cry of Stand Together is needed more now than ever.
