Caylee Anthony Song Proceeds to Benefit the National Association to Protect Children
'She's Going Places' -- the touching tribute song penned by Rascal Flatts' Gary LeVox, country music parody maker Cledus T. Judd and songwriter Jimmy Yeary in the wake of the "not guilty" verdict in the murder case against Casey Anthony over her 2-year-old daughter Caylee -- will soon be available for purchase. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the song that celebrates what little Caylee Anthony could have been will benefit the National Association to Protect Children.
"When I had the idea to do this song, being a daddy, I just wanted to do something that took the emphasis off the horrible details and outcome of the trial, and focus on that beautiful, innocent, 2-year-old with those big, brown eyes," said Judd, who is known for his comedy and parody songs but took an artistic left turn with this beautiful song. He debuted the song on his radio show on Tampa's WQYK last week and ever since then, people have been buzzing about the song, online and off.
As of today, the song will be sent to all major digital music sites, including iTunes, and to radio. Go here for more information.
"For too many years, the news media has focused almost exclusively on 'stranger danger' cases," said Grier Weeks, Executive Director of the National Association to Protect Children. "Yet over 90% of all child-abuse victims are hurt by adults in their own circle of trust."
"Every day, thousands of children like Caylee Anthony are preyed upon by the very adults who should most love and protect them. We believe that protecting children -- in the home and in local communities -- is the most sacred obligation of all people, and 'She’s Going Places' will touch the heart of millions, inspiring them to this cause.
