Continuing the fight against COVID-19, GRAMMY® Award-nominated singer/songwriter, activist, and actress, Andra Day, unveils a timely and appropriate song from her catalog entitled “Make Your Troubles Go Away.” Raising money for the people who need it most, Andra‘s inimitable voice emits hope as she pleads, “I wish I could take your pain.” The soothing hook doubles as an affirmation with the words “make your troubles go away” ringing out as encouragement in these trying times. Andra Day will donate proceeds to GiveDirectly to benefit families affected by the global pandemic. Listen/share “Make Your Troubles Go Away” HERE via Warner Records.
Andra partnered with GiveDirectly—the leading global non-profit specializing in digital cash transfers—as a Lead Ambassador. Andra recently launched her personal campaign for GiveDirectly, the #IGiveDirectly fund, to support vulnerable families. Last week, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert announced the partnership, and Andra also gave a mesmerizing Bill Withers tribute. Watch it HERE.
