A great song for a great cause, with special guest, 50 Cent!

Here's a chance to hear some great music and support an incredible cause at the same time. The band Men in My Head, for whom Gig Gear LLC founder, Danny Shatzkes, plays keyboards, just released a new single, Century Love. The song was recorded in collaboration with world renowned hip-hop artist, 50 Cent. Bandleader, Eddie Gindi, spearheaded the collaboration and also arranged for the release of the single to be sold in partnership with Century 21 Department Stores

All proceeds of the sale of the song, either via CD or download, will be donated to Tuesday's Children, an organization founded to promote long-term healing for all of those directly impacted by the events of September 11, 2001.

In 2013, Men in My Head partnered with Tuesday's Children for the first time with the release of their #1 hit single, Survivor Tree. That song spent 21 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot Singles Sales chart, and 23 weeks overall. The song also was the #1 best-selling CD single of 2013 in the US. In total, the sales of Survivor Tree raised $275,000 for Tuesday's Children.

The band, Century 21 and Tuesday's Children are all very excited to be working alongside 50 Cent this time around and everyone involved is anticipating that this collaboration will help to make Century Love be just as successful, and hopefully even more so, than Survivor Tree

Go ahead and purchase the song right now at the Century 21 website by clicking here.
