Joplin Tornado May 22 2011

A good friend of mine ( Shawn Elliot )is a Recording Artist out of Miami, Florida. When the Tornado hit Joplin I contacted him and asked him to write and record a "Special Song" for Joplin and Citizens to help Uplift them. With the song he wrote and recorded I created this video with photos of the devastation.
Also he has this track on a special website to sell for $1.00 or for any Donation. All Proceeds will be Donated to St Johns/Mercy of Joplin. He is now producing a Music Relief Album with several other Artists of different Genres which will be added to his site. He will also be shooting a Music Video with this song.
Titled "Believe" ft Naela. ( the lyrics are also on this site, just scroll down and read the lyrics as the song plays.
Shawn and I have teamed up to bring HELP to Joplin and St Johns/Mercy of Joplin.
I live in Neosho and Joplin is part of our lives as well.
I would ask that you share Shawn's website so help us reach our GOAL of $100,000.00 for St Johns/Mercy of Joplin.
We are in the process of designing a Special Website for this cause. Will post the URL once the website if completed.
So Please take a few minutes and visit Shawn's site and DONATE whether you like the song or not.
Also I would like to invite you to Join Our Group:!/home.php?sk=group_188846311167610&ap=1
This Group was Create by Naela Menchaca, she's the female vocals singing the Chorus.
WE NEED YOUR HELP and Most Importanly Joplin Needs your HELP...

i hope all does go well for this community. it's hard to see what was once your home and everything is gone. my apartment caught fire years ago and i stood and watched everything we had just burn up. but, at least we all got out ok.

I hope everyone gets a chance to hear the song, go to the link, and ultimately donate to this fund. We are aiming to help rebuild this hospital and are relying on the compassion of people like yourselves to help us do it. Thank you :)
