Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2009-05-11In 2003, a group of about a dozen local artists came together to raise money for the Grand Rapids Public Schools through the release of a compilation album which was called “Standing Together.” Now, six years later, “Standing Together 2009,” a 17-track compilation featuring nationally known and locally known artists aims to raise more support for the same cause. Released on February 11, 2009 at a community gathering by Mackinaw Harvest Music Group and One World Music, the release was made available at Meijer stores and even at a handful of West Michigan McDonald’s restaurants. The compilation features an eclectic selection of talented musicians ranging from the Verve’s Brian VanderArk to Grand Rapids’s own Ralston Bowles.
