#VOTW: “The Wall Will Fall” By Rick Springfield & Friends For Charity

Rick Springfield has enlisted his friends to help him release his new single “The Wall Will Fall,”  to help raise money for people adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The music video is designed to look like a Zoom video chat with Springfield, and he is surrounded by some famous faces.

Rick Springfield, together with Vance DeGeneres, have gathered up their famous friends (and family) like Ellen DeGeneres, Paul Stanley of Kiss, Sammy Hagar of Van Halen, Matthew Wilder, Tommy Tutone and members of the B52s, Berlin and Loverboy,

 “The upside is this is the first song I’ve ever done with no-one else in the studio,” Rick tells Noise 11 Magazine, “I did the clicktrack and sent it to Matt Bissonnette who plays bass for Elton. He sent it to his brother Greg who plays with Ringo. It kept on going to other musicians who added their parts separately. I Zoomed them to explain the idea so the video was totally done on Zoom”.

Download the song now on I-Tunes or Amazon Music – 100% of the proceeds go to Feeding America.
