Marc Broussard Shares New Video Of Otis Redding Cover For Charity Album [Premiere]

first_imgBeloved soul singer Marc Broussard recently released S.O.S. 2: Save Our Soul: Soul On A Mission, an album filled with covers of songs from the 50’s and 60’s. The new release has a special function, as 50% of all proceeds went to City Of Refuge – an Atlanta-based charity that does groundbreaking work for the homeless population of the city.The S.O.S. album was actually the second in a series released by Broussard, with the first album mainly picking on upbeat soul numbers from Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and more. The second dug deeper into the genres and pulled out hits from its earliest days.“About a year ago, when we decided to do SOS 2, we tossed around several themes like blues, soul and even yacht rock,” explains Broussard. “But something about this song “Cry To Me” called out like it needed to be heard by the world again. I couldn’t get away from it. I’ve followed my gut at every step during this process and hopefully it pays off because we’re gonna help a lot of people.”From there, Broussard got to work on S.O.S 2, putting together a beautiful album in the process. But he’s not done yet! “The plan is to release an S.O.S. album every year along with associated video content and leverage those through licensing and sales to help those in poverty.”We’re honored to premiere the first video in support of S.O.S. 2. Watch as Marc Broussard covers an Otis Redding classic, “These Arms of Mine,” in the video below..Says Broussard, “This is the first Otis Redding song I ever heard. I was 8 years old and my dad had just joined a new band and was learning a bunch of new material. I fell in love with Otis’ music that day and have only grown to love it more through the years.”Broussard will be playing these songs and his original material on tour throughout the month of November.
