Josh Charles was in the process of making New Orleans his home when Katrina devastated New Orleans. He was forced to get on one of the last buses out of the city and into Houston. A brilliant piano player who has studied and played with Dr. John, Wynton Marsalis and The Meters, Charles was scheduled to hit the recording studio the day after Katrina roared through town, claiming lives and flooding homes and businesses. Three months after the storm, Josh made that return trip to begin his scheduled recording with members of Dr. John's band and found people displaced, heartbroken, and hungry. Troubled by images that will never leave him, he wrote "Healing Time." "I had to do something," says Charles. "The spirit of New Orleans is with me wherever I go. Times are still very hard down there, but together we can make a difference. For less than a cup of coffee you get a song, and all of the money goes to rebuilding homes through the PRCNO. It's a win -win." Josh developed a new and revolutionary partnership with Amazon.com. Its the first time that Amazon is not taking their 30%, but instead allowing us to give the entire $.99 download to rebuild through the PRCNO. "Healing Time" is also available on iTunes. Josh is currently on tour with the Nevilles and Buckwheat Zydeco. He was a guest on the Tavis Smiley Show, has been featured on CNN, in USA Today, and has been nominated for 3 Grammys for his song Healing Time. You will not want to miss this is a very timely story as we have recently past the 4 year anniversary of Katrina Aug. 29. Find out what is happening in New Orleans today, and how you can help.
