Website launched in honor of late mentor and E Street Band member Danny Federici. Bruce Springsteen's PSA for website debuts during Super Bowl pre-game.
Jason Heath & the Greedy Souls have contributed a moving new song, "A Fighter's Lullaby" as a free download on charitable website Dannyfund.org, in honor of their late friend and mentor, Danny Federici, who passed away last year from melanoma. The website, dedicated to raising awareness and funds for melanoma research, officially launched this week with a PSA featuring Bruce Springsteen that broadcast during Super Bowl XLIII. "Danny was an absolute inspiration to all of us," says Heath. "Our song is dedicated to him, along with anyone who's found themselves traveling through the wilderness of personal struggle."
Dannyfund.org was created by Federici's son, Jason, a member of the Greedy Souls who has appeared onstage with the E Street band. "This organization was started to grant my father's final dying wish," says Federici. "He wanted to touch as many people as he could to raise awareness about melanoma and the dangers of the sun." All funds will benefit a major study conducted by Danny Federici's doctor, Jason Chapman at the Sloan-Kettering Memorial Hospital in New York City.
Jason Heath and the Greedy Souls are currently promoting their debut album The Vain Hope of Horse, dedicated to Federici's memory.
