Rock musician Jonathan Auerbach proudly partners with The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund in a shared commitment in support of the men and women of the armed services. The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, a not-for-profit organization and national leader in supporting the men and women of the United States Armed Forces and their families, has provided over $120 million in support for the families of military personnel lost in service to our nation, and for severely wounded military personnel and veterans. The Fund most recently opened the National Intrepid Center of Excellence to support the research, diagnosis, and treatment of military personnel and veterans suffering from traumatic brain injury.
Jonathan’s bold new single, “Brave Woman, Brave Man” – from his new Nashville-recorded rock CD “HEARD” – is a salute to all our American men and women in uniform serving overseas at great cost and sacrifice to defend the United States and freedom at home and around the world.
The song and lyrics are available for listening and for purchase at www.jonathanauerbach.com and through Amazon, iTunes and all other major digital distributors, with 100% of the proceeds it generates going directly to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.
A noted recording artist and powerhouse performer… Jonathan’s award-winning writing and all-original rock — soulful stories, gutsy guitars, and strong vocals — has garnered worldwide radio play, press praise, and a notable USA and European fan base. Taking a stand… Jonathan’s outreach through his music has boosted causes such as Habitat for Humanity and notably, “music therapy” in cancer care at Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute – donating and raising money, raising awareness, public speaking and teaching master classes in music performance to kids with cancer.
“I’m honored to partner with the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, an outstanding national organization with a great cause, and I’m pleased to give my support to their leading work serving those in critical need who proudly serve our country,” said Jonathan Auerbach. “My song “Brave woman, Brave man” honors the valor of our American military personnel — fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters — who fight our country’s wars, while underscoring every soldier’s hope for an end to war and a safe return home.”
“We are extremely grateful that Jonathan Auerbach has chosen to champion our important cause and shares in our mission to support the men and women of the armed forces and their families,” said David Winters, President of the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. “Jonathan, who has an incredible platform from which to speak, will help us alert countless individuals to our critically important work for the military and veteran communities.”
The partnership will also include additional collaborative efforts to be announced in the coming months.
