Mercy for the Gulf

MERCY Pauli Carman Icon

“MERCY” just released by multi-platinum recording artist Pauli Carman “Champaign” to benefit restoration/preservation from BP Gulf disaster.

We got a sneak peak of Pauli Carman’s new single geared at helping oil spill clean-up efforts in the Gulf of Mexico last month, a beautiful cover of Marvin Gaye’s “Mercy, Mercy Me”, and posted about it twice already.

But with the new single by this talented and succesful musician just released, and as a special thanks to Pauli and his team for reaching out to us, I am posting about it one more time.

The following is Pauli Carman’s official press release, with more information than I originally posted on the star musician himself and where the proceeds from the single will go. I encourage you to get the single and enjoy!

Multi-platinum recording artist Pauli Carman has switched gears from writing/producing his current project to record “MERCY,” his rendition of the provocative environmental anthem hit “Mercy, Mercy Me” recorded originally by the late singer Marvin Gaye. Gaye wrote and released this eerily prophetic tune for the landmark album, “What’s Going On,” almost forty years ago.

Carman was inspired and irresistibly compelled to record “MERCY” as he followed the daily news of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The increasing loss of marine and wild life, damage to the U.S. fishing and tourism industry, and watching the oil creeping treacherously toward the U.S. coastline conjured up feelings of urgency to contribute in whatever way he could.

Best known as the lead vocalist for the Pop/R&B group “Champaign,” Carman is hoping to make a difference by donating generously to this worthy cause. “MERCY” is now available at Amazon, (soon at iTunes), the designated proceeds to be donated to The Greater New Orleans Foundation / Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund in order to help support regional clean-up efforts and organizations focused on the restoration and preservation of the Louisiana wetlands and wildlife.

Pauli Carman and “Champaign” catapulted to the top of the music charts in the Pop, Soul, R&B and Easy Listening genres with the #1 hits “How ‘Bout Us” and “Try Again,” still being played today. He has just released his CD Album #8, “Get Back 2 Love,” available at iTunes.
