Singled Out: Levi Ware's Hey Hey

Today Melodic Caring Project founder Levi Ware tells us about "Hey Hey" from the brand new album "Raise A Record," which features donated songs to raise money for the organization that streams live concert events to the beds of hospitalized children. Here is the story:

"Hey Hey" was a really fun and different experience for me from a song writing perspective. I had fallen into a bit of a rut in my guitar playing and was looking for a fresh approach to song writing. One day, at my parent's house in 2009, I picked up my dad's ukulele and started playing around with different fingerings. Having never played the uke before, I had no idea what chords I was playing, but the tone was so pure, and the melody that came was sweet and simple. It inspired a pure and simple song about my sweet wife.

Since writing "Hey Hey" my wife and I founded a non-profit called the Melodic Caring Project and have dedicated all our time to streaming live concerts to hospitalized kids. Somewhere in the middle of this adventure, we realized the the lyrics for "Hey Hey" are perfectly suited for the kids who are battling heavy illnesses (such as leukemia or neuroblastoma), and "Hey Hey" has become the theme song for the Melodic Caring Project. It has been amazing to watch this song encourage these incredible kids. We even had one young man learn the song in secret and play it to us when we went in to visit him in the hospital... Pretty powerful!

"Hey Hey" is now the lead song on a new compilation CD of donated tracks called RAISE A RECORD that was just released to raise money for the Melodic Caring Project.
