“The greatest thing you’ll ever learn, is just to love, and be loved in return.”~Eden Ahbez
Gradient Productions & Silk Espresso have partnered together this february with hope that love might be shared with those who may well need it most.
My Father’s House is a family shelter in East Multnomah County, Oregon who’s mission it is to, “Provide housing, education and a supportive community so homeless families can regain their independence and transform their lives.” They shelter over 130 families a year, and have a success rate of 85%. Still, there are over 3,000 homeless families in Multnomah County alone, and on average My Father’s House turns away 100 each week.
That’s where we come in. If love can change the world, then surely it can when it is expressed through song.
This Wednesday, February 9th, Gradient & Silk Espresso will release their first song on iTunes: “By My Side”
(Look for this album art!)
This song is not only meant as our own special tribute to Silk Espresso, a place we all love, but to all those families struggling to find a home. Many local musicians & artists came together in the creation of this song, resulting in something entirely unique. All proceeds will go directly to My Father’s House in their fight against homelessness.
We ask that you help us spread the love this Valentines season, and also to help change lives. For just 99¢ we can all make a difference. There will also be a live performance at Silk Espresso on Friday the 11th.
So remember, “By My Side” coming Wednesday the 9th on iTunes.
