Home Free burst onto the country music scene in 2013 following their epic win on the NBC singing competition The Sing Off. The Minnesota-based a cappella group gained a large and faithful following with their jaw-dropping country and crossover music covers.
The talented quintet is reaching out to their mass following with a cover of Little Texas‘ “God Blessed Texas” in an effort to show their support and to help raise funds for those affected by Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Hurricane Irma in the Southeast U.S.
The cause is especially dear to the vocal band because their bass singer, Tim Foust, is a native of Texas and knows many that were personally affected by the catastrophic storm.
“As a Texan, I was heartbroken to see the effects of Hurricane Harvey,” said Tim Foust. “And as a native of Nederland, it’s devastating knowing that 500,000 people have been affected in my community alone.”
As a way to celebrate the resilience of Texans and bring joy to those who are starting the process of cleanup and rebuilding, Home Free wanted to record a special version of “God Blessed Texas” with all proceeds from sales and streaming going to benefit the relief efforts.
In addition, the group has also started a YouCaring campaign to raise money and awareness for those affected. The goal is to raise $100,000 by September 29. The money raised through this YouCaring campaign will go to the Nederland Church of Christ Disaster Relief Fund and the Southeast Texas Food Bank. The money will go to help Southeast Texas get back on their feet by providing food, water, shelter, school supplies, beds, cleaning supplies, tools, and more.
