Dick Wagner Release St. Jude Benefit Holiday Single
A group of esteemed rock musicians have recorded a Christmas single under the guidance of Dick Wagner. The song, which is called "If I Had The Time (I Could Change The World)" was written and produced by Wagner. It is available to buy as a digital download, with 50 cents from each purchase benefitting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Wagner is a guitarist and songwriter who has worked with the likes of Alice Cooper, Aerosmith, and Lou Reed.
Among the more than fifty musicians who participated in the recording (dubbed the Rockers For St. Jude) back in September are Trini Lopez, Mark Farner of Grand Funk Railroad, Chicago founding member Danny Seraphine, and former Michael Jackson guitarist Jennifer Batten.
“When I decided to write a 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. ‘If I Had the Time (I Could Change the World)' embraces the notion that we can do something positive to help change lives,” Wagner told LA.com. “The children are the purpose of this song. By downloading this song, we can all make a difference – one download at a time.”
