Legendary Groups Chicago and Earth, Wind & Fire create unique music promotion to benefit food banks nationwide.


Music legends Chicago and Earth, Wind & Fire have announced that they will raise money for local food banks nationwide on their 30-city national co-headlining summer concert tour beginning June 5 in Orange Beach, AL (dates below). In exchange for cans of food or a donation, fans will be able to download three new songs recorded earlier this year.

Although the fans will recognize two of the songs, the recordings will catch them by surprise, as Chicago recorded Earth, Wind & Fire's "I Can't Let You Go," and Earth, Wind & Fire recorded Chicago's "Wishing You Were Here." Together the bands created a new original song written by Earth, Wind & Fire entitled, "You." These newly recorded songs will be available during the summer tour with a donation by the concert goers.

The donation promotion of "Three songs for Three cans or Three dollars" will benefit specific food banks in each city. Coordinating the effort will be World Hunger Year, Inc. (WHY). WHY is dedicated to fighting the root causes of hunger and poverty by supporting grassroots organizations that create self-reliance, economic justice and equal access to nutritious and affordable food. 
The organization will collect the cans and/or donations, and in exchange, the fans will be given a download card to access the three songs. For those fans interested in participating, but unable to make it to the shows, they can go to to make a donation and download the songs.
