| Visiting Artists Donate Songs to Benefit Riley Hospital for Children -
Fort Wayne, IN, November 30, 2009 - Sweetwater, the third-largest music instrument and pro audio retailer in the world, and Fort Wayne radio station WAJI, Majic 95.1, have again combined forces to issue Volume Four of Majic Miracle Music, a compilation CD of new recordings by national musicians, which will be sold locally with all proceeds to benefit Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis.
The CD is priced at $10 and is available at Anne's Hallmark stores, Borders, Cookie Cottage, Tampa Wellness Oasis, Lutheran Hospital Gift Shop, all Wooden Nickel locations, as well as Sweetwater's retail store at 5501 US Highway 30 W, and online at:
www.waji.com (and) www.sweetwater.com/miracle/
Nationally recognized artists, including Michaelson, Uncle Kracker, John Tesh, Aimee Allen, Matt Kearney, and State of Man appear on the CD with new, acoustic versions of their popular hits. Most of the CD's 20 songs were recorded at Sweetwater Productions, the region's premier recording studio. The others are acoustic recordings donated by the artists.
"The first three volumes of Majic Miracle Music Volume were great, and raised more than $25,000, so we hope to raise a good deal more with Volume Four," said WAJI Program Director, Barb Richards. "We are so blessed to have Sweetwater Sound right here in Fort Wayne. They have a true desire to help the kids at Riley and we thank them so much for helping us to make this great fundraising project a reality!"
Majic Miracle Music is a project of Sweetwater Studio 95, a partnership launched in 2006 by Sweetwater Sound and Majic 95.1 WAJI for the recording of live, acoustic versions of songs by bands and artists visiting Fort Wayne. These recordings, along with extended interviews, are broadcast on Majic 95.
"We're delighted to be a partner in supporting a wonderful organization like Riley Hospital for Children, and to be able to contribute by doing what we do best," said Sweetwater President and Founder, Chuck Surack. "We hope that everyone will show their support by purchasing the Majic Miracle Music CD for themselves, and as a gift for friends and family."
