A song created via collaboration with over a hundred Puerto Rican's is poised to assist with bringing solar energy to over 13,000 folks currently still without power on the island.
The song is “A Celebrar” and the team behind it is The Goodness Tour; a non-profit group who brings music and art to people facing adversity all over the world.
Two months after the destruction of Hurricane Maria and Irma, the group travelled to Puerto Rico to work with kids and communities provoking artistic expression as a healing force through music and painting.
It was in these initial efforts that an unexpected song was born through the voice of a man attending one of their classes. The team dropped everything to follow the birth of this special song in an incredible 3 month journey that weaved in vocalists and musicians from all across the Island.
This incredible story resulted in a song and music video called “A Celebrar.”
The Goodness Tour released this song on the island in Puerto Rico accompanied with an initiative to raise funds for a local Puerto Rican non-profit organization called Off Grid Relief, who are bringing solar power to homes still without electricity.
The success of the song and it’s fundraising effort thus far, including the sale of several paintings by Goodness Tour painter Benjamin Swatez, raised enough money to bring solar power to 7 recipients, including the home of Mia Jordana; a 15 year old who is one of the key writers and singers of the song “A Celebrar.” Her family home had been without power for 130 days and were able to now flick on their lights thanks to Mia’s creativity.
“A Celebrar” is an example of art into action. This powerful song born from the belly of adversity seeks to create joy, awareness and a solution to the many homes still in the dark across Puerto Rico.
Help us raise more funds to bring light to families in great need all across Puerto Rico. Go to: THEGOODNESSTOUR.ORG where you can purchase the song and merchandise, or donate directly to OGR. Please share to bring awareness. Please donate to make a change. Thank you.
