“Since file sharing is popular these days, we are donating $.10 cents for every person who listens to the song or downloads it for free. When the song is purchased for $0.99 we will donate $1.09.”
NJN Network has also donated all production costs and the copyright royalty to this project. The musicians donated their time. Avolve Technology donated their graphic design for the cover art. Continue reading →
