GRAMMY winning singer/songwriter John Berry has released a video and the single "All Come Together." The proceeds of the song will go to help the victims of the recent Eastern KY flooding. Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear has established the Team Eastern Kentucky Flood Relief Fund to assist those impacted by the floods and the severe weather system that impacted KY residents and businesses on July 26, 2022.
Berry has also called on his friends Keb' Mo', Collin Raye, John Oates, Casey James, Bryan White, John Cowan, Darin and Brooke Aldridge, Heidi Newfield (Trick Pony), Dave Innis and Paul Gregg (Restless Heart) and Mike Farris to join him in the studio to record the uplifting song.
"Robin and I wanted to do something to help the victims of Eastern KY and the state with clean-up efforts and much-needed essentials," reflected John Berry. " I wrote this song with my buddy Chuck Jones in September of 2017 after the hurricanes hit in Texas and I hope it encourages you to donate your time volunteering or give money to help."
Co-writer Chuck Jones added, "John Berry, and I got together to write a song one late summer day in 2017, we'd been watching footage of Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Louisiana that weekend before. We felt compelled to write about that devastation. When we played the song for John's wife, Robin, she had the great idea to use the song to help raise funds for the victims of that flood, as well as the victims of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
"The resulting recording and video of "All Come Together" brought together over a dozen country, pop and gospel artists, videographers, studios, and engineers, all donating their time and talents to that cause. The recent tragic flooding in eastern Kentucky has, for so many, meant the loss of everything they had. So it seemed like the right thing to resurrect our song and video as a fundraiser for those unfortunate folks. I feel privileged to be a part of any healing it might bring!"
