Dino Jag - Calling All Saints (SOS Haiti)

.
Dino Jag is an Australian performer who is usually associated with groove-oriented R&B music. For instance, he had a hit with a cover of Wild Cherry's dance song, "Play That Funky Music." However, if the only song you ever heard by Jag was "Calling All Saints," you might never guess this guy has ants in his pants and needs to dance.

In stark contrast to his other dance floor concoctions, "Call All Saints" is a hymn-like cry for help. The song's subtitle, "S.O.S." Haiti," is just what it says it is an emergency cry for help. It was inspired by the recent Haiti earthquake. Jag was in the studio, working on the demo for a song with the same title, when he heard the news about this devastating disaster, and it wasn't long before the song's lyrical perspective began to take shape.

Over a somber piano backing, Jag channels the helplessness one must certainly feel when the world is seemingly coming down around them. "Is anybody watching over me?" he asks, in the character of one that has been victimized by such a powerful force of nature. Jag sings it beautifully, with a falsetto vocal that is fully emotionally charged.

Like many others, Jag gave to the Red Cross at the time. However, he took it one step further by releasing this track as a free download, in order to encourage others to also give to the American Red Cross. The song is in ReverbNation's Music for Good program, where 50% of all proceeds go directly to Oxfam America, where it is also the most downloaded song in the program.

The song is not only for a good cause, but it's a darn good song, at that. I highly recommend you download this song to support those suffering from the aftermath of Haiti's earthquake. You won't regret it because you'll also become an owner of one really fantastic song.
