(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) —
Musicnotes, together with songwriter/artist Harry Connick Jr., will donate all proceeds from the sale of downloadable sheet music for the song “City Beneath the Sea” to the New Orleans Division of Habitat for Humanity.
“City Beneath the Sea,” written in 1996 as a tribute to his beloved city of birth, was specifically selected to be used in the Hurricane Katrina relief effort by Harry Connick Jr. 100% of proceeds from the sale of this $4.95 sheet music download, available exclusively at Musicnotes.com, will go towards the Habitat for Humanity relief program.
“We strongly encourage every musician to download and play Harry Connick Jr.'s love song to New Orleans,” said Musicnotes CEO, Kathleen Marsh. “Not only will the proceeds go to a great organization, but the music will help soothe the soul while New Orleans is being rebuilt."
Connick has agreed to be honorary chair of Habitat for Humanity's "Operation Home Delivery," a long-term rebuilding plan for the hurricane-damaged Gulf Coast. Connick has been an active promoter of the charity for years. –Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
