Andy Griggs and hit songwriter Bobby Pinson have penned a song dedicated to the families of those affected by the recent tragedy in Newtown, CT. Proceeds from the song, “20 Little Angels” will be donated to the Sandy Hook School Support Fund managed by the United Way of Western Connecticut.
“United Way says there will be no fees for the administration of this project,” says Griggs. “Even credit card companies have waived their fees for credit transactions benefiting this cause.”
“My eyes have been raining all afternoon. ‘Twenty Little Angels’ tells of the tragedy and asks questions we all have asked and want to know. How did these sweet, pure, innocent children get ‘caught up in someone else’s hell?’ We do believe these little angels are in heaven now so we tried to put things in perspective by sharing our personal feelings to calm our anger and soothe our grief by writing a song that would bring comfort to us and to all affected by this tragedy,” Griggs wrote on his Facebook account.
“20 Little Angels” will be available for download, via iTunes, this week.
Griggs notes, “There’s not enough that can be done for this cause but by downloading this song, everyone’s small contribution can make a big difference to the families of these ‘Twenty Little Angels.'”
