Local radio celebrity Paul Fletcher, the music director at Cities97, is spreading the word about a charity close to his heart.
Rock the Cause Records, or as Fletcher calls it, "the charity of charities," teamed up with Fletcher and singer and songwriter Matt Hires to create a song to benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Upper Midwest. They're calling it the "At Home Project."
"Hold You Up," was written by Hires after an inspirational visit at the Ronald McDonald House.
Fletcher's affiliation with the House developed when his little girl, Elsie, now 2, was born with a rare intestinal disorder called Hirschsprung's Disease. According to Mayo Clinic, the disease causes problems with passing waste.
“After our experience, I felt inspired to share the story of the Ronald McDonald House and the families who have been touched by their beautiful work,” Fletcher said after the song was released in October. “Being active in the Minneapolis radio scene, I knew I wanted this to be through music.”
