The Carl V. Bini Memorial Fund (CVB Memorial Fund), a Staten Island-based non-profit organization, has commissioned a song specifically written and produced to raise funds for the rebuilding process in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. The track entitled, "The Pride," features renowned artists Zakk Wylde (Black Label Society, Ex-Ozzy Osbourne), Morgan Rose (Sevendust, Call Me No One), Kevin Martin (Candlebox, The Gracious Few), John "JD" Deservio (Black Label Society, Cycle Of Pain) and The Infinite Staircase.
"When we were approached about the project we were honored to get on board," said Massimo DiDonna, Co-Founder of The Carl V. Bini Memorial Fund. "This song will not only strengthen the resolve of those affected, but also serve as a beacon of hope during the aftermath of the storm that families have not been forgotten and that we will not rest until the rebuilding process is complete."
The song was recorded on December 12 in Butler, New Jersey at Architeckt Music, and both the studio and the recording engineer, Mike Ferretti, graciously donated their services to the project.
"The entire Bini organization would like to extend its thanks to everyone involved," said Anthony Rapacciuolo, CVB Memorial Fund Board Member. "The artists especially need to be recognized, because they’ve created a timeless memorial to a moment in history that affected so many."
The musicians featured on the song all have close ties to the heavily affected areas of New York and New Jersey. Some were raised there and all have friends or family residing in those states. In the case of JD DeServio and Lenny and Jeff Cerzosie of The Infinite Staircase, they currently live in the areas of devastation.
The song will be released, as an iTunes exclusive, via Vanity Music Group sometime in late January with the exact date forthcoming. 100% of the proceeds raised from the song will benefit The Carl V. Bini Memorial Fund.
The Carl V. Bini Memorial Fund was founded in honor of Firefighter Carl V. Bini, a member of the FDNY tragically taken during 9/11. The fund’s mission is to memorialize the heroism of its fallen hero by providing aid to those who so desperately need it now and in the future.
