Concurrently, BIG KENNY has also released a brand-new tribute song he wrote in memory of his friend, WALT RATTERMAN, who passed away during the HAITI earthquake (NET NEWS 2/11). “Cry With You” was recorded just before KENNY left for HAITI to help with the relief efforts.
The song includes the FIRST STRING ORCHESTRA (directed by CARL MARSH), with spoken word by SENATOR BILL FRIST, BETTER THAN EZRA members KEVIN GRIFFIN and TRAVIS McNABB, GLOTOWN artist DAMIEN HORNE, LO CARTER and many others.
