Aris releases his new music video "Pray for Change" from the album "Twilight Revival" featuring a group of amazing activists, musicians & contributors
"My mother Ginny introduced me to the Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen back in 2007. She was a huge fan of the work they do, and her bringing me there changed my life and the way I chose to use my voice in the world." Aris confesses... " I wrote 'Pray for Change' drawing inspiration from my experiences at the Soup Kitchen and all the amazing people I've met since who are doing their part to change the world for the better."

The video is designed to inspire volunteer contribution and proactive involvement in tackling the issues we face in today's world. The video was released in conjunction with Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen's "3000 LIKES FOR 3000 MEALS" drive, which successfully raised funds to feed over 3000 people in need this holiday season.
Furthermore, all proceeds from the purchase of the song "Pray for Change" from December through the end of February will be donated to the Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen.
The song is available for purchase on iTunes -
"Pray for Change" features guest vocalists Kalyn Hemphill (Project Runway/Models of the Runway), Jimmy Jenkins, Nina Zeitlin, and musical contributions from Aaron Lee Tasjan (Semi Precious Weapons, The Madison Square Gardeners), Ben Tyree, Rob Heath, John Kengla & Jerry Orstein.
