Creedence Clearwater Revisited extends a helping hand this season for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation's charity CD Hope for the Holidays.
Doug “Cosmo” Clifford and Stu Cook of the legendary American musical group Creedence Clearwater Revival are pleased to be a part of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s charity CD Hope for the Holidays - Rockin’ Christmas for a Cure. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame rhythm section (drums and bass respectively) with their latest project Creedence Clearwater Revisited, contributed a version of the Christmas classic "Run Rudolph Run" for inclusion on the compilation CD which serves to benefit the JDRF.
"Seasons Greetings from the CCR rhythm section - Stu Cook and Doug 'Cosmo' Clifford. We have always felt blessed, especially as the holidays near, and this season we would like to give some back. We hope you will join us in our effort to spread the word about the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation with this wonderful holiday CD, Hope for the Holidays. We believe it can help to make a difference in the fight against this horrible disease."
The 27 track collection also includes holiday recordings from Weezer, Collective Soul, The Beach Boys, Jon Anderson of Yes, and others. "Run Rudolph Run," written by Johnny Marks and Marvin Brodie, was first recorded by Chuck Berry in 1958. Creedence Clearwater Revisited's fresh take on "Run Rudolph Run" is one that gives the holidays a rousing, classic rock, swampy flair. The track can be heard in its entirety by clicking here.
Juvenile diabetes (Type 1) is a devastating auto immune disease which can strike children and adults suddenly, but lasts a lifetime. Approximately 24 million Americans have diabetes and this number is on the rise. Evidence suggests that 1 in 3 Americans born in 2000 may develop some form of diabetes in their lifetime and, to date, there is no cure.Hope for the Holidays is currently available at national retail outlets including Best Buy and can also be found on Amazon.com, CDBaby.com and is available for download on iTunes. All profits will benefit the JDRF.About Creedence Clearwater Revisited:Stu Cook and Doug "Cosmo" Clifford may not have initially intended it, but their band Creedence Clearwater Revisited has taken on a startling life of its own. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame rhythm section from the legendary group Creedence Clearwater Revival launched the Creedence Clearwater Revisited project in 1995 to once again perform live Creedence Clearwater Revival hits, touchstones of a generation. Creedence Clearwater Revisited, which also includes guitarist Tal Morris, vocalist John Tristao, and multi-instrumentalist Steve Gunner, has since performed up to 100 shows a year and released the RIAA certified platinum CD Recollection. About JDRF:JDRF is the leader in research leading to a cure for type 1 diabetes in the world. It sets the global agenda for diabetes research, and is the largest charitable funder and advocate of diabetes science worldwide.The mission of JDRF is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly, and can be fatal. Until a cure is found, people with type 1 diabetes must test their blood sugar and receive insulin injections multiple times each day, every day of their lives. Even with intensive care, insulin is not a cure for diabetes, nor does it prevent its eventual and devastating complications, which may include kidney failure, blindness, heart disease, stroke, and amputation.Since its founding in 1970 by parents of children with type 1 diabetes, JDRF has awarded more than $1.3 billion to diabetes research, including more than $156 million in FY2008. In FY2008, the Foundation funded more than 1,000 centers, grants in laboratories, hospitals, industry and fellowships in 22 countries.
