In yet another push for the Friendship Circle musician Moshe Hecht is offering his song entitled “My Friend”, which was written by himself out of his inspiration as he himself was a Friendship Circle volunteer as a teenager. Today with just a few days left to vote in the Chase Community Giving competition for $1 million, the song is being offered as a free download to whoever votes for the friendship circle.
“I wanted to do more then just vote” said Moshe, “so here is my encouragement to get those that didn’t vote already to go head and vote.”
The song was written from the perspective of a child with special needs, “My Friend” illuminates the impact volunteers make through their time spent talking, playing and bonding with their special friends. Filled with emotional lyrics like “I may not look like you, but I sure dream like you,” and “I can’t stop smiling, for no one knows me like you,” the song describes the transformative bond that is affecting the lives of the children, their families, and their volunteers as they help remove the stigmas so often applied to those with disabilities.
“I’ve seen firsthand how friendship can change everything” says Hecht. “I wrote this song to share that reality with the world.”
