    Jim Allyn My Beautiful Town

    Jim Allyn and the Newtown Youth Choir are a local grass-roots pop/folk group, with a mostly easy acoustic style, and an entirely positive message. This single was recorded in a bid to heal and provide hope following the tragic events at Sandy Hook Elementary in December. Sales of the song will benefit Sandy Hook Promise, a local non-profit working to help the community, including those most affected, to heal and to give it a voice in the national dialogue on addressing the causes of gun violence. Newtown students of local music teachers Jim Allyn and Francine Wheeler, mother of victim Ben Wheeler, together created the recording. The song is  available as a digital download on Amazon, below.  The CD release of “My Beautiful Town (Hometown Mix),” is also sold by local retailers, and features cover art by renowned local artist David Merrill: an iconic painting of a winter evening scene of Newtown’s Main Street. Listen to the NEWTOWN YOUTH VOICES perform the song on the Internet Broadband station " Arias, Anthems and Angels " from LIVE365.com. 100% of Proceeds to Benefit the Sandy Hook Families [MS9015]
