Egg Sandwich (Kid’s Charity Song)

This is my first foray into making kids’ songs, as well as, my first song for charity and I can’t be more excited!  “Egg Sandwich” is a song that’s had several versions since Jeramy Lamanno and I wrote and recorded it in my parents basement many years ago.  However, the latest and greatest one, written specifically for kids is quite different to say the least.

The proceeds from the song will go to benefit charities that feed kids when they are in and out of school.  A lot of kids don’t excel in education because they are properly nourished and don’t have the energy.  So getting them some proper nutrition actually helps on several different levels.

I’m giving folks the chance to buy it at the normal $.99 price or with a larger donation that will go to the charity.   The song will soon be available on all platforms (iTunes etc.) but currently is only available at:

https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/chriscates18    –  This is the $.99 option and is at my trusted distributer CDBaby.

If you would like to contribute more towards charity email chris@chriscates.com and I’ll set you up with a PayPal button.

The video features my twins, Joy and Coral, and a cast of characters that include Adair, Jeramy, Singleton, John Kell and more of my friends’ kids that texted me some video.Thanks for checking it all out and supporting a great cause!

September 30th “Totally Awesome Song”

Every now and then I make a song that is totally undescribable.  I would classify today’s song in that realm.

Adair came home after a football game one night and reminded me of the ‘Awesome’ cheer that cheerleaders do.  Of course she was then employed to face the mic for some totally awesome cheers.  I figured I would keep the words silly and simple to fit with the general silliness of the endeavor.   Also if you’re reading this before eleven in the Charlotte television market, I’ll be singing three ‘365’ songs on ‘Charlotte Today’ on WCNC.  It’s gonna be a lot of fun!  Thanks for listening!
