Fourteen of the brightest up-and-coming independent artists in Nashville have come together on the song, “We Will Rise." written by Jaime Fox  and Jami Grooms. Originally, the song was recorded in order to bring awareness and encourage donations to the survivors of the flood disaster in Tennessee in May 2010. On the day the song was recorded, however, the artists unaminously agreed that once the Nashville community had recovered from the flood disaster, the song would be used to help create a brighter future for foster and adoptive youth. We are pleased that Nashville has, indeed, recovered, and we were able to move on to the next chapter of We Will Rise Nashville.
