Funk legend Bootsy Collins is seeking to bring unity to the community with a new launched intiative. His “I Give A Funk” program is actively trying to save and re-introduce music to kids in schools throughout the country and the world. Bootsy says, “We’re out to actively Tour the World, touching down in as many cities, states, and countries as possible to spread Unity in the commUnity…the power of music can strengthen bonds and bridge gaps. To make a difference the simplest thing you can do is “Reach out, and touch somebody!” THIS is what #iGiveAFunk is all about…I will be touring the Globe touching the hearts, minds, bodies, and souls of those in my path with that PURE-UNCUT-FUNK-DA-BOMB spreading a message of Unity!
Bootsy Collins and company have also launched a new single with music video (above) to get the groovement started. The effort also includes fellow Ohio musicians Midnight Star, Shirley Murdock and Eddie Levert.
