Song to highlight Macy’s Fireworks on October 28th
New York, NY (October 18, 2011)—The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, Inc. announced today that in celebration of the Statue of Liberty’s upcoming 125th Anniversary on October 28th, Macy’s has committed the proceeds from the sale of its newly recorded song “Gift of Light” to benefit the Foundation’s non-profit mission for projects at Liberty and Ellis Islands, working in partnership with the National Park Service. With music by Grammy- winning composer Doug Katsaros and words by Emmy-winning lyricist William Schermerhorn, “Gift of Light” was first recorded by Ann Hampton Callaway and The Broadway Inspirational Voices as a highlight of the 2004 Macy's 4th of July Fireworks score.
In honor of the anniversary of Lady Liberty's dedication 125 years ago in 1886, the song has been expanded and recorded specifically as a special feature of the musical accompaniment for the Macy's Fireworks display which will be the grand finale of the upcoming October 28th festivities on Liberty Island.
This new version, in English and French, celebrates the Statue as a gift of friendship from France to America, and features Tony Award winning actress Anika Noni Rose and cabaret artist Gay Marshall.
The “Gift of Light” single is available on iTunes with proceeds to benefit The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, Inc.
