Frank D'Angelo raises money for Haiti Relief through song

TORONTO, Jan. 28 /CNW/ - Just as he's completing his "Cheetah the cold" campaign for the homeless, where he and staff continue to hand out blankets to the homeless, Frank D'Angelo dives in head-first to assist the suffering people of Haiti with the release of a new song to benefit charities for Haitian relief.

"Watching images of the disaster on television and seeing the pain and suffering of people who lost their loved ones and their homes in this tragic disaster, I knew I had to get involved to help. And then words of the song just came to me," said D'Angelo.

The original words and music entitled "It's Just Got to Go" by Frank D'Angelo is an inspirational tune sung in his classic R&B style and will be available through various retailers and online at www.frankdangelo.ca for only $2.99. With all net proceeds being donated to Haitian Relief.

"The maple leaf not only represents our great country, it represents how big our hearts are when it comes to helping those in need." continued D'Angelo. "I'm more than confident Canadians will support this song, and in turn, help our brothers and sisters in Haiti."

All monies donated from this song will be matched by the federal government. A gesture which can prove to be very substantial.

Never one to stand still when it comes to helping those in need, this past November, D'Angelo launched his own personal campaign to help the homeless by releasing a special rendition of "Silent Night." The song, a remake of an old standard, was played on radio stations across Canada and available online at www.frankdangelo.ca and the iTunes Music Store with all net proceeds donated to charities that support the homeless.

Over the past several years D'Angelo has recorded and released several CD's and performed countless benefit concerts in support of The Breast Cancer Society of Canada and many other charities. Whether it's entertaining Canadian Troops or opening for the likes of Tom Cochrane, Peter Frampton, Burton Cummings, LoverBoy, Gino Vanelli, The Temptations, Cowboy Junkies, Alannah Myles and George Canyon, when D'Angelo covers all-time favourites or sings intricate original scores he commands the spotlight and treats the audience to a non-stop show filled with infectious energy.
