King 810 are streaming a new song to help raise funds for residents in their hometown of Flint, Michigan.
The band have teamed up with local Flint outlet Savage Village to help support the Community Foundation of Greater Flint’s ‘Flint Child Health & Development Fund.’ The track “We Gotta Help Ourselves” has been released to raise awareness and you can listen to it below.
Say King 810: “Most of you by now have heard what is going on around town. Since the inception of KING in 2007 our foundation has been our city and its people, good or bad.
“Since music is our voice, that’s how we’ve chosen to go about things. We wrote this song to empower. To strengthen rather than weaken. To offer solutions instead of problems. To breed hope rather than doubt.
“Go to saveagevillage.bigcartel.com to purchase a ‘We Gotta Help Ourselves’ T-shirt. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the Community Foundation of Greater Flint. For more info on the Community Foundation of Greater Flint, go to www.flintkids.org.”
A state of emergency was declared in Flint last December after it was confirmed that dangerous amounts of lead were contaminating the city’s water supply. In April 2014, in an effort to save money, the city had switched from using Detroit’s water system to pumping water from Flint River.
