Singer/songwriter Martin Caine of Tyler knows what it feels like to be hungry, homeless and unsure of your future.
This difficult time proved to be inspiration for his new song “Alone.” In the song he encourages us all to reach out to others.
Winter is fast approaching and people out there need our help especially at this time of year.
It’s up to us to make a difference.
“I wrote this song ‘Alone’ to raise awareness of people who are in need — the homeless and the hungry — and the fact that they are not always in situations of their own making,” says Caine.
He has pledged that all the money raised from downloading the song will go to two charitable organizations that feed and shelter people who are in need.
“Having grown up in the U.K., I have been aware of the U.K. charity Crisis and the invaluable work it does for some time now. It struck a chord with me.”
Caine, who is concentrating on his solo singing career, is donating all proceeds from U.S. and Canadian downloads of “Alone” to the East Texas Food Bank and all the U.K. and European download proceeds to Crisis.
You can download the song from the iTunes Store and Amazon MP3 store. For more information about Martin Caine, visit his website, martincainemusic.com, or his Facebook page.
