Project Grand Slam (PGS) was formed in 2008. Their debut album, Play (2008 Cakewalk Records), featured the Top 20 hit “The Captain Of Her Heart” with internationally renowned guest vocalist Judie Tzuke. In addition, PGS and five of the tracks from Play were featured in an episode of the hit NBC-TV series, “Lipstick Jungle”, starring Brooke Shields. Play received rave reviews and was nominated for several Grammys. PGS has now released their new version of the classic Hollies hit, “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother”, with Special Guest Vocals by Joye Hennessey. The song is dedicated by the band for the benefit of the victims of child abuse, relating to the Penn State University sexual abuse scandal. Like millions of people across the United States and the world, the members of PGS were sickened to learn of the sexual abuse allegations connected with a former coach in the Penn State University football program. PGS was in the midst of completing a new album when they realized that “He Ain’t Heavy” was particularly appropriate to the Penn State scandal. The song’s title was the motto for Father Flannigan’s Boys Town charity, which was created in the early 1900s to help disadvantaged and abused children. The song’s message of support for victims and the abused is consistent with Penn State’s healing efforts following the sexual abuse scandal. PGS has therefore decided to immediately release “He Ain’t Heavy” as a single, and the band has agreed to donate a portion of the proceeds from the song to benefit the victims of child abuse. The song is available for download on CDbaby.com, iTunes, Amazon and all other major online retainers, and is also available for online streaming from Spotify, Napster, Amazon and others.
