Veteran rockers Blues Traveler have shared a new single in support of The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign. The group recorded a rendition of “Go Tell It on the Mountain” in support of the charity’s 126th Red Kettle Campaign.
“After learning all the ways the Salvation Army helps people in need, we wanted to help too,” said Blues Traveler frontman John Popper. “Their impact on feeding and sheltering people who need it most is undeniable, and we are grateful.”
Blues Traveler is giving 100 percent of the net proceeds from download sales of “Go Tell It on the Mountain” to The Salvation Army. The single can be purchased via bluestraveler.com as well as on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon.
“Music is an important part of The Salvation Army’s history, so there is no better way for us to celebrate the season than through song,” said Lt. Col. Ron Busroe, national community relations and development secretary for The Salvation Army. “To have an iconic group like Blues Traveler do something so selfless in the name of our organization is very inspiring to us and we are incredibly grateful.”
Contribution to the Red Kettle campaign can also be made at one of over 25,000 red kettles found outside storefronts around the country. Donations are also accepted online at RedKettleReason.org and through the Army’s text-to-give program by texting the word “KETTLES” to 51555.
