My name is Donna Hopkins, I co-wrote the
song, Sending Love, with Susan Ransom.
We intended this song to be used for the
purpose of raising money to provide financial
relief for people in need. It was Ransom's
dream for this song to send out Love &
financial relief to anyone who may need it. Susan Ransom passed from cancer in 2019. Now, this song and our intentions from the start, have come full circle.
It's been 12 years since Brad Bauman, the featured harmonica player on Sending Love, started playing with me. When you listen to this track, you will hear the essence & beauty of Brad's harmonica playing. He is not only a wonderful musician, but an amazing, kind, loving & giving man. In May of this year, Brad was diagnosed with Stage IV Adenocarcinoma Esophageal Cancer. Sending Love has now come full circle to help my dear friend and musical brother in his time of need.
EVERY penny of the downloads will go directly to Brad & his family!
We express gratitude & many thanks to Paul Diaz and all of our friends at Tree Sound Studios, of Norcoss, GA, where we were honored to record it. Featured artists on Sending Love are, myself, Donna Hopkins (Guitar & Lead Vocals), Brad Bauman (Harmonica), Richie Jones (Drums/Percussion), Michael Hurwitz (Bass), India Hopkins & The Praise Team (Background Vocals).

Who’s down for The Count?
Count M’Butu has had an amazing life in music. Sharing the stage with legends like Eric Clapton, Santana, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi was achieved through his sheer tenacity, and a belief that a person can achieve anything they desire by “asking the universe.”
“The Count” has been friend and mentor to many people, young and not-so-young. Now he needs your help. Count has a degenerative neurological condition that has left him immobile. His wife, Graciela does all she can, but they both need in-home care on a daily basis. Arranging this care through Medicare can take months, and the current home care they receive is minimal, at best.
We are asking all who know, love and appreciate Count M’Butu to donate any amount that you can. 100% of your donations will go toward daily home healthcare for Count, and financial assistance for Count and Graciela. Click Here to Donate Now.
I am Mark Chester of “The Flying Oatsmen,” and I am honored to be donating my song “Heavy Road” for the cause of raising funds for my good friend, Count M’Butu.
Many thanks to Rev. Jeff Mosier for producing this song. Featured artists: Rev. Jeff Mosier (Banjo, vocals), Jerry Sorn (Dobro), Russell Brown (Guitar), Scott Balun (Bass), Darren Goot (Drums), Mark Chester (lead vocals)
Richie is a friend and fan of The Count and is also a drummer. They've shared the stage several times. His original art captures
the essence of the Count. Richie has donated prints of the original to help this effort. Get yours today and add some original art to your home.
Pay $40 or add as much as you'd like to your donation. 100% goes to The Count!
