Billboard Magazine Launches Feature on Rock Legend Slash and Gary Miller
Billboard is slated to post the article covering the in depth interview on August 29, 2014 along with a premiere track preview of Rock Legend, Glenn Hughes, and his rendition of Sting's hit record, "Roxanne."
Rock against Trafficking was featured in Billboard in May of 2014 with the announcement of top Grammy musicians joining the cause to create an upcoming CD release entitled “Set Them Free” featuring select stars performing their original versions of their favorite Sting song with proceeds to benefit the nonprofit.
In addition to Slash, Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple), Julian Lennon and other iconic artists listed in the original article, major support continues to grow for the nonprofit with the most recent stars coming on board to include Carlos Santana, Lee Ritenour, and Keb Mo.
Billboard Magazine is on board to present the official track preview of Deep Purple's Glenn Hughes and his interpretation and recording of "Roxanne" which is scheduled to post some time today.
“I want to personally thank Julian Lennon, Slash, Andy Fraser, Glenn Hughes, Keb Mo, and all of the amazing talent on board for giving our organization their full support in both the gift of music and their heart for humanity. We also want to say a special thanks to Jeff Moore of ESP Guitars for their support as well,” says Cheryl Schayer, Public Relations and Talent Liaison.
“In having the opportunity to meet Gary Miller and hearing his vision about this humanitarian cause, it has given me a feeling of purpose in knowing that together we can unite people around the world to make a difference to begin the movement to stop this crime against humanity. As long as I can breathe, I will continue to fight to stop this crime against humanity,” says John Schayer, Director of Public Relations @ Rock against Trafficking.
“27 million people are slaves today. 80% of trafficking victims are women and girls. 50% are minors and every year 2 million children are exploited in the global sex trade. Human trafficking is the 2nd largest criminal business enterprise second to drug sales and it is the fastest growing by far. We are joining together in a solid commitment through music to make a difference,”
