Donate To The Chester Bennington Tribute Campaign To Receive Your Download Of Jennifer Hope's Rendition Of "My December"

September 26, 2017 - Alternative Singer-Songwriter Jennifer Hope, releases her cover version of Linkin Park's "My December" to raise awareness of and contributions for Music for Relief’s One More Light Fund in memory of Chester Bennington.  The track is available today through October 27, 2017.

A one dollar donation is all that is required to receive a download code, but any additional amount is appreciated and your extended generosity can further help many in their time of need.  All donations go to the charity through the PayPal giving fund.

When asked why she was compelled to record this song and create this fundraiser, Jennifer explains, "I was first inspired to record 'My December' back in December of 2016.  I always thought that this bonus track on the Hybrid Theory was underplayed.  After various delays, my cover version was completed on July 20, 2017.  I heard about the passing of Chester Bennington shortly thereafter."

"In the shock and sadness of the news, 'My December' felt more like a tribute.  After taking time to consider the delays I had in creating this track and the timing in which it was finally completed, I feel as though this version of 'My December' is meant for Chester Bennington/the Music for Relief, One More Light Fund.  I hope in some way recreating this beautiful song provides a source of solace in the loss of Chester Bennington and extends to those who have lost loved ones to suicide."

 Jennifer Hope is an Alternative Singer-Songwriter based in Los Angeles, California. Known for her distinct ethereal/dream pop vocals, unique songwriting style and enchanting renditions of well known songs, her tracks have been released on Cleopatra Records as well as her own label, Mystic Dreams Music.  Of Jennifer Hope’s various releases, her LP, Velvet Fire and EP, X-Tremities were sponsored by Eddie Van Halen and produced by Warren Huart (Aerosmith, The Fray, James Blunt).  

 Music for Relief is a nonprofit organization, which was founded by the band Linkin Park in 2004 and is comprised of musicians, music industry professionals, and music fans. 
Since inception in 2005 Music for Relief has raised over $9 million for survivors of multiple natural disasters.  MFR is currently sending aid to help families in Texas, Florida and the Caribbean to recover from the damages following Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.  In addition, Music for Relief has established the One More Light Fund in memory of Chester Bennington.  The fund will honor his generous spirit and desire to help others.  

 Song Download Codes And Instructions Will Be Messaged Upon Completion Of Your Donation.

Tax Deductibe Donation Receipts Will Be Emailed From The PayPal Giving Fund.

I want to thank everyone again who donated to, shared and supported the Music for Relief charity fundraising campaign. Thanks to you, “My December” raised $6,150.00 for the One More Light Fund in memory of Chester Bennington! The fund will shine a light on mental health, helping individuals & families coping with mental and emotional struggles. It will also support solar suitcases - solar electricity kits for remote health clinics without electricity.

I also have some last fundraiser prizes!
The Van Halen Hollywood Bowl Concert Venue Poster & Deluxe Edition Red Vinyl Album goes to top donor Nick Orlando. Thank you so much for your generous contribution to the charity! The Van Halen T-Shirt is for the person who shared the campaign the most on social media which is....none other than Johnny Beane! Pete Steinfeld & Lee Whittaker will receive the Jennifer Hope Velvet Fire & X-Tremites CD’s for their unexpected and very cool second top donations. And Marc Ferrari, Rob Lontok & Jacqueline White being the third top donors get their choice of Velvet Fire or X-Tremites. :)

When I decided to cover this Linkin Park song, I had no idea I would end up putting it to use for their charity in memory of their singer! But when I got the completed track from the mixing engineer in my email and heard the news about Chester Bennington on the tv on in the background literally a few minutes later...the connection and significance greatly changed!
And Your Support Has Meant Everything!
