NO MORE HURTING PEOPLE
THE OFFICIAL SONG OF THE BOSTON STRONG CAMPAIGN
Presented by the Gravity Foundation & Boston Strong
As we all struggle to make sense of the trauma and inhumanity we've experienced over the last several months - and even across our lifetimes – we find ourselves in need of hope and the strength to move forward. Sometimes a song comes along that provides that strength. The power of music can supercede tragedy and penetrate the heart like nothing else. It can give voice to our souls' deepest emotions.
The song “No More Hurting People” was inspired by the memorable, heart breaking picture of 8 year old Boston bombing victim Martin Richard holding up a handmade sign displaying these four words. This message was obviously a desire of his heart. It's the desire of billions of people's hearts around the world.
Written and produced by Grammy winning producer Mark Heimermann (DC Talk, Michael W Smith, Jaci Velasquez, Stacie Orrico, etc.) with co-writer Marc Martel, formerly of the band “Downhere” and current vocalist for the Queen Extravaganza.
This anthem's purpose is to counter the effects of evil and hatred. Sometimes music can be one of the greatest weapons against these forces. It is our heart to bring encouragement and a greater hope to all hurting people through the melody and lyric of this song.
“Music is one of the most moving ways to bring people together regardless of differences in backgrounds. The touching words combined with the power of the music will serve many purposes; to remember, to heal, to grieve, to love and to bring hope for the future.” Lane Brenner - Executive Director of Boston Strong
“May this song be a voice of hope and healing to the people of Boston whose lives have been so tragically impacted, and may this anthem rise up as a unifying cry for peace not only for the city of Boston, but for our nation, and our world." -Mark Heimermann, co-writer and producer of "No More Hurting People"
