All proceeds of the music sales will benefit the Outreach programs at St. Luke's: The People Living with AIDS project, which provides a weekly meal, spiritual counsel (optional), and fellowship for clients living with HIV/AIDS, and "The Church": Art, Acceptance and a Place to Be Yourself for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/ Questioning Youth and their Allies, which provides a safe haven for LGBTQA street youth under the age of 21.
A note from Rosanne Cash about Jim and George:
"As a longtime supporter and member of the St. Luke's community, I am so happy and humbled to offer this track to help benefit the outreach programs at St. Luke's.
I wrote this song about an elderly gay couple in Chelsea who were very dear to me, and it was an exercise in compassion and awareness to see myself through their eyes, and them through my eyes. Love is Love, and love doesn't contain itself within arbitrary borders of gender, orientation, race, nationality, creed or age. Love is Love, and I send as much as I can to the outreach programs and the entire St. Luke's community."
