Well, here it is, the end of Rock the Cause week on Borangutan, and I hope at some point in the past several days we were successful at imparting the strong message RtC has for you. I’m just about ready to spring out the door to run the many errands I have before Glitter Ball tonight, but first, I received an email from RtC founder Scott Herold earlier this week that I’d like to share. Scott’s story is Rock the Cause’s story; one man with a vision who helped others find that similar vision within them. He sent over the following personal quote, but really, the heart of RtC is found in the music – the music of the artists who now perform for RtC, and Scott’s own music he created just prior to its founding. He shared a bit of that music with us below.
I realized I did not want to be trying to make it as a performer in my mid 30′s. It was an expensive habit. I think the songs really get to the heart of what I am about. In some ways what is really working at the core of Rock the Cause. I am very proud of all the people who have made Rock the Cause what it is today. The energy, emotion, and dedication of everyone let’s me know that Rock the Cause will continue to be a thriving, innovative force in philanthropy and music.

Scott didn’t send a name over for the following tune since it never went beyond the demo stage. I’m just going to call it “Vision.”
“Vision” by: Scott Herold
Just for kicks, and in the spirit of music communicating meaningful change in our lives, this last one I picked just for you. I hope I see you at Glitter Ball tonight!
