THE STORY:

I am a Singer/Songwriter (having written for Sesame Street & Elvis Presley, among others,) Working to raise consciousness, raise spirits, and raise funds to help Homeless Veterans via the sale of “Hymns For The Homeless Veterans” CD's & Music-Video DVD's, at Benefits & Concerts & TV, Radio & Online Media Venues. Funds needed to cover Production Costs—Musicians and Technical Staff: $5000 for the CD + $5000 for the DVD.
My home-made solo demo of one of the selections “When Johnny Comes Marching Homeless” is available on Youtube:

A Hymn For The Homeless Veterans

From the slums of Philadelphia to the streets of East L.A.
There are vets in homeless shelters and park benches night and day:
Though they fought for our freedom,
Though they served their country well,
Now they're living out on the streets, Lord!
And their lives are a living hell...
2
Though they fought like bloody heroes With bright medals on their chest,
Now their bank accounts are zeroes, And they're post-traumatic stressed:
Please don't let them be forgotten now, and their service all in vain;
We've got to help these brave men and women now
find a way to live again!
3
Meanwhile some guys up in fancy offices and in chauffeured limousines
Are busy stuffing their own coffers, Sending more U.S.Marines:
They don't care how many thousands die, nor how many widows grieve:
All they care about is The Bottom Line:
The heavy profits they'll receive...
4
From the slums of Philadelphia to the streets of East L.A.
There's a half-a-million heroes who've been passed and cast away:
We can't let them be forsaken now, It's a low-down dirty sin!
We've got to help our broken soldiers now find a way to live again!
Open up the doors of your compassion!
Welcome our broken soldiers home!
Open up the doors of your compassion!
Welcome our broken soldiers home!
Open up the doors of your compassion!
Welcome our broken soldiers home!
repeat & fade...
