Celebrated musicians from the history of rock & roll recently joined talents to record “If I Had the Time (I Could Change the World).” Available now, fifty cents from each download will benefit the work of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in finding cures for pediatric catastrophic diseases.
The benefit song is written and produced by legendary lead guitarist and songwriter, Dick Wagner (Alice Cooper, Aerosmith, Lou Reed, Kiss). Wagner says, “There is more love in the human heart than can ever be given away. This song is about giving a small part of that endless supply.”
Among the performers are Trini Lopez and Mark Farner (formerly of Grand Funk Railroad) on lead vocals, Chicago founder Danny Seraphine on drums, bass superstar Lee Sklar (James Taylor, Jimmy Buffet, Jackson Brown), Fred Mandel on piano (Alice Cooper, Queen, Elton John), and guitarists Elliot Easton (the Cars) and Jennifer Batten (Michael Jackson).
“When I wrote this song to benefit St. Jude children, I thought about what a song can mean in the context of our inner lives, the part that is willing to give, to help others in a time of need,” says Wagner. “‘If I Had the Time (I Could Change the World)’ embraces the notion that we can do something positive to help change lives. By downloading this song, we can all make a difference.”
“If I Had the Time (I Could Change the World)” is available for download worldwide on iTunes, Amazon.com, cdbaby.com, and on other digital download sites.
