Video

My selection for the video this month is a music video, “Carry On” by Siedah Garrett, and was selected based on the background, which follows:

Recently another MS Non-profit group, The Nancy Davis Foundation (Erase MS) held one of their galas. Performers included Chicago and Siedah Garrett, who, among other things, is a co-writer of Michael Jackson’s “Man In The Mirror”. During the event, Ms. Garrett announced that in 2012 she had been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. She performed her song “Carry On”.  The proceeds from the sale will go to Erase MS,
