Houston - Download the song by Slick for Free at Houston - Slick Sax
Things go wrong every day… from lost keys to the dog peeing on the carpet to your kids getting into trouble in school… and then some things only happen once a month… like that rent bill and car note, and yet still some happen only once a year, like your Superbowl team losing or Alabama winning again. And then there’s this… something that happens once a decade. Our friends in New Orleans know all about it thanks to Hurricane Katrina. And now unfortunately it has happened again, this time to Houston and much of Texas. This hit me in a sore spot… because I had no idea what was happening as I watched Mayweather win his 50th boxing match. I sat there having so much fun with my wife like the world was fine while 100’s of people were going through the worst time of their lives. I had no clue, until the following Monday when I went to the Weather Channel. And it all hit me at once… what a terrible and unbelievable thing that has happened to the great city of Houston!
Usually when I hear of bad events I go into prayer and let God handle what he handles… but this time I felt moved to do more this time, because I know a lot of you who visit our website are from Houston or have family there. So after I finished my day making tracks for our customers, I felt moved to create this song… all from scratch, starting with the keys… and then the drums, then bass, then jazz guitar… then my vocals (yes, my vocals lol) .. then baritone sax… then chimes to finish it up. 3 hours later, I had a song called Houston.
I intended to create a song to sell and give all proceeds to the victims, but instead I decided to make the song downloadable for free from my Soundcloud Slick Sax account and encourage each of you to give DIRECTLY to those in need in Texas. My hope is that this song will move you to action in giving whatever you can to people you know in need, or at least share the song with them. Sometimes the best thing we can do is donate our gifts… so hopefully this song will encourage and spark something refreshing for everyone who listens...even if it is only for 4 minutes and 52 seconds.
Houston, we love you, and our thoughts and prayers have always been with you. We hope you enjoy the song, download, and share it with anyone you know that has been affected. Remember, everything heals in time! Sincerely, Slick on behalf of the entire SFR Beats team!
