To help raise money and awareness for cystic fibrosis, Grammy Award-winning singer/ songwriter/rapper Everlast (a.k.a. Erik Schrody, who has a two-year-old daughter with CF) is supporting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation through the sale of the song “Long Time.”
From May 8 through May 22, each 99-cent iTunes download of “Long Time” will spur a 65 cent donation (the label's entire proceeds) from Everlast, Martyr Inc. Records and EMI Label Services to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
“Cystic fibrosis is a lifetime battle,” Everlast says. “The CF Foundation is doing a lot of really good work, and they're on the verge of making more big breakthroughs.”
In addition to the “Long Time” donations, Everlast and his family participate in Great Strides, and the artist has recently teamed up with fellow musicians and comedians to further support the search for a cure.
“Long Time” is part of Everlast's album Songs of the Ungrateful Living, a 15-cut collection that highlights the struggles and untapped potential of the nation during the economic recession.
