Southern rock legends Molly Hatchet are giving all proceeds from their new single “Fly On Wings Of Angels” to the Somer Thompson Foundation. The single, which will appear on Molly Hatchet’s upcoming ‘Justice’ CD, is available for purchase at http://www.mollyhatchet.com/MollyHatchetMP3Downloads.html.
Diena Thompson found herself living every parent’s worst nightmare when her 7 year old daughter went missing on October 19, 2009. Two days later, in a Georgia landfill, Somer’s body was discovered. The community felt an immediate call to action. Fundraisers were coordinated to aid Diena and her family, as well as to raise money for the reward fund.
Multi-platinum, International Recording Artists Molly Hatchet has played an integral part in supporting Diena Thompson. The band donated items for a silent auction and orchestrated a benefit concert, which included fellow Jacksonville based bands, Something Distant and Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. Molly Hatchet’s biggest contribution to this case is the song that was written in Somer Thompson’s memory. “Fly on Wings of Angels” is a beautiful ballad that opens with Somer’s older sister, Abby, singing “You are my Sunshine”, Somer’s favorite song. The song will be the first single on the bands new album titled “JUSTICE” which will be release on June 1, 2010 worldwide.
