Music News: Brooke White Gathers Her Friends for Surprise Charity Album

Written by Music, News

2014 has been an amazing year for new music, and my very last purchase of the year will hopefully arrive this Friday — that said, we could still use a little help from our friends to make it happen.

Brooke White Paisley 600

The album, Never Grow Up, is the latest platter of potential pop perfection from singer, songwriter, actress, girl with glasses, fashionista and friend of Popdose, Brooke White. It’s a collection of lullabies and happy songs that promises to be the sonic elixir we need to heal from just about everything in the news.

This isn’t the first time Brooke’s fans have enjoyed a White Christmas. In 2012 she released her first holiday album, one what was good enough to avoid the wrath of Mellowmas. Read the complete Popdose holiday interview here.

This time around, Brooke enlists a little help from her friends: Idol alumni David Archuleta and Carly Smithson, country star Deana Carter, Jack Matranga (half of White’s stellar duo Jack & White) plus Leigh Nash, Mindy Gledhill, Daniel Tashian (The Silver Seas), Lucy Schwartz, John Hanson and Chris Seefried.

It’s a fundraising affair, 80% of proceeds go to Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.), an organization that rescues kidnapped children from sexual slavery. Foundation Entertainment will MATCH all donations up to $20,000. Right now the project is at 75% of its goal and the deadline is tomorrow.

$10 gets you an instant download and if you have more to donate, a whole pile of goodies awaits you.

To learn more about the album and the charity, the singers and the songs, visit the project’s PLEDGE page here.

And in case you missed it, you can buy Brooke’s White Christmas on Amazon.
