WASHINGTON, Jan. 24, 2012
/PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The long-awaited No Labels Anthem is now
featured in the iTunes Music Store and available for purchase for 99 cents. Written by Grammy award-winning platinum artist Akon and performed by Grammy-nominated platinum artist Deborah Cox,
the song's proceeds will help fund No Labels, a citizens' movement of
Democrats, Republicans and Independents by empowering our leaders to
work across the aisle. Recently, No Labels launched its Make Congress Work! action plan,
which features a dozen common sense proposals to combat the gridlock
and hyperpartisanship that make it virtually impossible to deal with
America's serious challenges.
"When I told Akon about No Labels,
he was so inspired that he stayed up all night to write this song,"
said No Labels co-founder Lisa Borders.
"The No Labels Anthem speaks to our fellow citizens of every persuasion
who are not being served by a partisan, dysfunctional Congress. We want
our leaders to work together - like the words and melody of this iconic
song - to do what's best for the 'indivisible' United States of America."
No Labels mission moved me to get involved and perform this song,"
said Cox, who has 11 number-one Billboard dance singles. "To citizens
like me, Congress is like an orchestra where every member is trying to
play their instrument louder than the next. That makes for bad music and
its made for bad government. Our leaders need to put aside their
differences and work together for the good of the country."
The No Labels Anthem debuts on the day of the president's State of the Union address, where over 196 members of Congress
will be sitting with members of the opposite party. No Labels has made
bipartisan seating at the State of the Union and all joint meetings of
Congress one of the 12 proposals in its Make Congress Work! action plan.
The No Labels Anthem can be purchased on iTunes here and the album cover and lyrics can be viewed here.
Labels is a group of Republicans, Democrats and Independents who want
our government to work again. Our dozen proposals to Make Congress Work!
mostly don't require new laws or new spending, and don't favor any
party or particular cause. These are simple, straightforward proposals
to break gridlock, promote constructive discussion and reduce
polarization in Congress. They can mostly be adopted all at once when
the next Congress convenes in January 2013.
