Boston, MA (PRWEB) December 4, 2008
Celebrity Pop Singer Heather Schmid has released a new single 'Touching Down' to benefit the children of rural China affected by AIDS.
Heather wrote the song and another titled 'Tell Me Your Story' about her experience with the children of Hefei, China. On the overnight train returning from a visit with the children, Heather penned the lyrics after a moving day spent among the village. Half way around the world, Heather told the story, shared the photos and the lyrics about her new friends to producer Rich Balmer as they worked on her new album. WIthin a full day in the studio they recorded 'Touching Down' and 'Tell Me Your Story'. During the recording sessions Heather had a full page photo of the children in front of her to fully dedicate the music. All proceeds from the sale of 'Touching Down' on Itunes and CDBaby purchases go to Global Village and the Chi Heng Foundation.
The Global Village is a non-profit charity that provides education opportunities for rural children, basic needs for orphans, much needed medications, water storage facilities and in some cases a college education to many poor rural students.
As a touring pop/rock artist Heather Schmid toured China, Pakistan, the Middle East, and not just the major cities. 'I have had more fun performing in smaller cities around China, it's very rewarding performing for an audience that has never seen an International Pop/Rock Show before." Heather Schmid is a recording artist recognized worldwide for her artistry, charity, and influence. As a Recording Academy member, Heather's approach is fiercely independent.
Heather is a new breed of pop star. She feels herself as part of the global village. She is a citizen of the world and wants to help shrink the boundaries between us. Her music is a vehicle to build bridges between our countries and speak the universal language of music. Her tour of 'The Goddess Within' and now her latest album '100% charity to Global Village' has one purpose to shrink the boundaries between us. So many things are possible now that were never before. Heather uses her music and influence to bring strength and uplift those without a voice.
