What a beautiful gift from these caring women for our troops. Thank you, Ladies
To bring a little holiday cheer to the men and women serving in the military, Hayley Kiyoko, a 2009 graduate of Agoura High School, co-wrote the song “Santa, Bring My Soldier Home” with her band, The Stunners.
The Stunners, a five-girl band that released its first extended play CD on Oct. 20, wrote the heartfelt ballad as a tribute to the service men and woman who cannot be with their families during the holidays, Kiyoko said in a statement to The Acorn .
Other members of the Stunners are Tinashe Kachingwe, Marisol Esparza, Allie Gonino and Colleen Fitzpatrick.
The song can be downloaded at no charge from the website santabringmysoldierhome.com, but producer Desmond Child wants to use the song to raise funds for the USO (United Service Organizations). The USO provides entertainment and other services to troops at military bases around the world.
In addition to asking people to donate to the organization after they download the song, Child developed a music video contest to generate funds for the USO.
People who have family members overseas are encouraged to download the song from the website, attach photographs of “their soldier” and post it as a video response on YouTube at youtube.com/user/theStunners. For every submission, a donation will be made to the USO, and one video will be chosen for use as the official music video for the song.
