The emotional track, called “Gone Too Soon,” arrived on Daughtry’s latest album, Break the Spell. As Daughtry explains in a video clip, the track was “originally was written about someone losing a child before he or she is born, and we've gotten so many amazing comments from people from everywhere about how it's helped them through similar situations. And I just felt very strongly that this song could be used to help benefit the families.”
Fans may purchase the songs via Monkeybars.net/Daughtry. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the sale of the songs will go towards the Connecticut School Shooting Victims Fund, which was established by fellow pop-rockers OneRepublic. Fans may also make additional donations via the site. So far, the fund has raised $100,000.
“I feel so blessed that I can be a part of bringing some sort of relief to the families right now, and I hope that you'll join me,” Daughtry added.
