Musician Dedicates Song to Support Wounded Warrior Project
CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The supporters of Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) come from all walks of life, and their generosity allows WWP to provide free, life-changing programs and services to injured veterans, their caregivers, and family members. David Britt of Charlotte, North Carolina, wanted to support WWP and the warriors it serves through music.
"After watching 'American Sniper' at home one afternoon a couple months ago, it just hit me – I had to write another song," David said. "I'd seen the movie numerous times, but something that day was different. I was overcome with emotion. I thought about all the men and women who've served and didn't make it back home at all. Then I thought about my kids, and I lost it. I had to write a song to say 'thank you' to our soldiers.
"The words just started flowing almost as fast as the tears from my eyes," he said. "I heard the song in my head. I grabbed my phone. Typed out the words and hummed the music into my recorder. The music worked to the exact second with the words. I knew this was not a song I'd sing; I thought of it as more of a beautiful song with spoken words. It came together nicely."
David has been a supporter of WWP for many years – while he did not serve, many service members are in his family tree.
"My dad, my dad's father, and my mom's father and stepfather all served in the military," David said. "It's a big tradition in my family, and I knew the first time I heard about Wounded Warrior Project, I wanted to try to honor their service by supporting a cause worthy of their memory."
