Teen country singer EmiSunshine has collaborated with Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame member Bootsy Collins on the new single, “Stars.” Proceeds from streams and downloads of the song will benefit the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund, which offers aid to help musicians and music industry members who have lost work due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Also collaborating on the song are Béla Fleck, Steve Jordan, Victor Wooten, Olvido Ruiz, Uché, Manou Gallou, Brian Culbertson, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram and Dr. Cornel West, the philosopher, professor and political activist.
Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame member Collins invited EmiSunshine, who has appeared on the Grand Ole Opry 14 times, to collaborate on the song after both artists were scheduled to appear in the Cincinnati Reds Opening Day Parade, which was later canceled due to COVID-19.
“I was very impressed by this young lady’s depth in the world around her,” Collins said. “It is my pleasure to support EmiSunshine in her musical career. She has all the real qualities of a real person and a true star.”
“I am excited and honored to be working with Bootsy Collins,” Emi said. “We come from different musical worlds, but I have always loved exploring and incorporating other styles in my own songs. The fact that ‘Stars’ will be used to help other struggling artists makes this project even more meaningful.”
