The song is available worldwide on iTunes (http://itunes.apple.com/album/id1070864647), Amazon and other digital retailers, with proceeds being donated to Road Recovery (www.RoadRecovery.o, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping young people battle addiction and other adversities by harnessing the influence of entertainment professionals who have confronted similar crises and now wish to share their experience, knowledge, and resources.
