The Bacon Brothersfeaturing Kevin and Michael Bacon, are pleased to announce that they and SixDegrees.Org have partnered with the Philadelphia Youth Organization Rock to the future. They teamed up and recorded”Philadelphia“, a song written by Kevin Bacon. “I wrote this song about our hometown of Philadelphia, and we wanted to give back in some way, so we connected my charity, SixDegrees.Org, with Rock to the Future, and it was a perfect match,” says Kevin.
Naheim Gaymon-Hill, a sixth-grader, wrote a rap that he contributed to the track. About the experience, he said, “I feel so lucky that Rock to the Future helped me build my confidence and gave me the opportunity to rock with The Bacon Brothers.”
The single, produced by Joe Nicolo at Minor Street Recordings of Philadelphia, will be released digitally on November 18 with proceeds going to Rock to the Future. Additionally, two videos were shot, an official one and a “Behind the Scenes” one; FreshFly’s Phil Bradshaw produced both. The official video will air the week of November 14, location to be determined.
Rock to the Future will host its annual event, Music For All Ball. It will take place at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia on April 29, 2023. A performance of “Philly Thing” is currently in the works.
