REVIEW

By Dan Haar
CTPost.com

It was a night of celebration and a night of sadness, a festival of lights and a recollection of darkness, a star-studded room filled with music, touched by silence.

The benefit, which raised well over $1.5 million for Sandy Hook Promise on Tuesday night at the Plaza Hotel in New York City, was not the group’s first high-key event but it might have been the most poignant for its timing.

There was Sheryl Crow, long a supporter, offering a debut-week performance of “The Dreaming Kind,” her haunting tribute to love and childhood exuberance, in honor of the 20 murdered children at Sandy Hook.

There was the former vice president, a national leader of gun control who is not, contrary to the wishes of so many in this ballroom, President Joe Biden. He and the parents who co-founded Sandy Hook Promise brought together National Football League royalty, Hollywood and business notables and friends to raise money, look forward in the never-ending fight for common-sense practices to end violence against children and, of course, to remember.

“It’s a huge mix of very intense emotions,” said Mark Barden, a co-founder of Sandy Hook Promise whose son, Daniel, was killed five years ago Thursday. “I found myself in the days leading up to the five-year mark remembering so clearly all the things I was doing with Daniel.”

That will never go away, of course, but in the noisy atrium of the Plaza Hotel ballroom, surrounded by so much support, Barden and the other family members found strength.

The Sandy Hook Promise movement, co-founded by the Barden and Hockley families, “is absolutely making progress,” Barden said, despite a lack of national gun-control legislation.

Previous fundraisers have been in Washington, D.C., in June — not at the anniversary of the horrible day at the emotional heart of New York’s Christmas season and on the first night of Hanukkah’s celebration of light and miracle.

There was an understated feel to the way people looked and dressed in the crowd of several hundred, and more than the typical sense of purpose.

“A lot of our employees live in Newtown,” said Indra K. Nooyi, CEO of Purchase-based PepsiCo and an honoree Tuesday night. “All of them were deeply impacted by the events in Sandy Hook.”

“It’s sad because we have to be here,” said Justin Tuck, a former New York Giants defensive lineman who retired two years ago to pursue an MBA at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. But, he added, “It’s a celebration because so many strong people have come together.”

He turned and greeted his old boss, the Giants’ third-generation owner, John K. Mara. Mara said he has not had any backlash in his pro-gun-control stance in National Football League circles, where many players are known to favor strong Second Amendment rights.

“I think it’s getting out of hand,” Mara said, referring to gun violence — not the rift in the NFL. “I don’t know how many more mass shootings we have to have.”

Nearby, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, wearing a suit and athletic shoes, declined to comment, saying only he was there to celebrate.

It was a celebration to be sure, alongside remembrance and the ongoing crisis of mass shootings. Two months ago, the nation’s worst mass killing in modern times at the hands of a shooter unfolded in Las Vegas. Just last Wednesday, the U.S. House passed a measure that would make it easier for gun owners to carry concealed weapons from state to state without regard to local permit requirements.

Fighting that vote might have been on a lot of minds Tuesday night, but for Sandy Hook Promise, the goal is a broader, less confrontational look at violence prevention — through education and encouraging people to talk and speak up before tragedies happen.

The group just unveiled a new, 90-second public service video: A chilling satire of a news report the day before — not after — a shooting at a school. The “reporter” asks a young mother with a small child what she will tell him and she says tearfully, she won’t be able to do that. “He’s not going to make it.”

“I’m very uplifted,” Mark Barden said. “We have saved lives. We’ve stopped school shootings.”

Fittingly, the new song by Crow only skirts the political debate, instead invoking a paean to innocence.

“I turned off the news again tonight/It’s getting hard to watch everyone fight,” the song opens. “So I’m giving it all I’ve got/There’ll be no more wasting precious time/Nothing’s ever going to change my mind that we’re beautiful inside/Maybe I’m just the dreaming kind."

[NEWS] Sheryl Crow criticizes country stars for not 'taking a stand' on gun control (The Guardian)

By Lois Beckett
The Guardian
12 December 2017

Crow, who is releasing a song dedicated to Newtown victims, says country musicians are afraid of speaking about gun laws and losing their audience

Money and fear have kept country music artists from speaking out about gun laws, the nine-time Grammy Award-winner Sheryl Crow said, even after thousands of country fans were targeted in October in the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.

“You would think after Vegas we would see some leadership from our country community,” Crow told the Guardian. “But all I can say about that is if there’s money involved, and fear, these conversations come to a screeching halt.

“There’s no one that I know of in the popular country world that is willing to step out and really to take a stand on this, and that’s really unfortunate.

“I hope there will be people who find a way out of their fear, who stick up for humanity as opposed to sticking with their fanbase or the money that can come along with having those large crowds.”

Crow’s new song, The Dreaming Kind, released on Monday, is a tribute to the 20 young children and six adults who were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut five years ago.

Proceeds from downloads of the song will benefit Sandy Hook Promise, a nonprofit founded by several family members of the shooting victims that has trained more than 2.5 million students and adults to identify signs of at-risk behavior before it leads to violence.

The song was inspired by Crow’s “real sense of helplessness” after the Las Vegas shooting, her frustration with America’s toxic gun debate and her struggle with how to tell her two sons, aged 10 and seven, about mass shootings that targeted kids like them as well as music lovers like their mother and her fans.

“It’s a horrible feeling for my kids to not even be able to know what happened at Sandy Hook,” Crow said, “for fear they’ll walk into school and think they’re not in a safe place, or that mom will go to work and there’s a chance she may not come home if there’s somebody in the audience with a gun.”

She tried to protect her two sons as much as possible from seeing news about the Las Vegas shooting on 1 October, she said, an effort made easier by the fact that her two boys are young enough not to have their own phones.

Three days before her Sandy Hook tribute song was slated to debut on ABC’s Good Morning America, she told the Guardian, she still had not sat down with her children to explain what had happened at the elementary school in Newtown. Even contemplating that conversation left her shaken.

“I think they won’t understand,” she said. “I’m not even able to fathom that.”

After the Las Vegas shooting, Caleb Keeter, a guitarist who played at the Route 91 concert which was targeted, shared a viral post explaining how the experience had profoundly changed his opinion on gun rights.

“We need gun control,” he wrote, “RIGHT. NOW.”

Roseanne Cash wrote an op-ed challenging country artists to speak out against the National Rifle Association and to break the cozy relationship between country artists and the gun rights group.

“There is no other way to say this,” Cash wrote. “The NRA funds domestic terrorism.”

But mainstream stars have not come forward to start a conversation on how to strike a better balance between gun rights and the right to go to a concert or a movie theater without the fear of being targeted, Crow said.

“I think it’s fear-based, this fear of losing your audience, this fear of pissing off your audience,” she said.

Crow said she knows that speaking out about gun violence and gun laws will spark a new round of online harassment and vitriol.

“My stance on it is very unpopular,” she said. “I’m a person just like everyone else is, and I’m not above being really hurt.” But, she said, “I want to see us do better, I want to see us as the country we were meant to be.

“The emotional terrorism that is being wielded from the White House down has everyone so on edge that it’s robbed us of our ability to have reasonable conversations, where we sit in a room and we’re able to discuss these very important topics with people we don’t necessarily agree with.

“As artists, I feel like we really have to show up in this, in all the areas that are hard for us. We need to write songs that talk about these issues. We need to write songs about what’s happening in our communities – the injustices, the people who feel left out.

“Outside of Bruce Springsteen, who writes for these people?”

Too many artists are putting out “the same song over and over, because it’s paying for the big houses”, Crow said. “Our fans need to know that we care about them.”

Crow’s new song is more grieving than confrontational. She said she saw writing a benefit song for a Sandy Hook nonprofit as “an opportunity to be proactive in a way that’s completely non-political, that’s completely compassion based”.

For the Sandy Hook parents and family members who listen to the song she said, she hopes that “perhaps there’s a little bit of comfort in it. Perhaps there’s just a moment of being transported away from the experience, and feeling there is something larger at play.”

Nicole Hockley, a co-founder of Sandy Hook Promise, lost her six-year-old son Dylan at Sandy Hook. She has become a full-time advocate for violence prevention. She said she cried the first time she listened to Crow’s song, and that “it is constantly, constantly in my head now”.

“When I wake up in the morning it’s the first thing I listen to,” she said.

Here's the official video:



Sandy Hook Promise is a national nonprofit organization founded and led by several families whose loved ones were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012. In just 3 years, Sandy Hook Promise has trained over 2.5 million youth and adults across all 50 states with its evidenced-based Know The Signs gun violence prevention programs.

The four programs – which include Start With Hello, Say Something, Signs of Suicide and Safety Assessment & Intervention - are offered free to schools and youth organizations across the country. These programs have helped stop multiple school shootings, suicides and other acts of violence, as well as reduced incidences of bullying and helped many young people get the mental health services they need.

Every $1 you donate helps Sandy Hook Promise train one student or adult how to Know The Signs of individuals at-risk of hurting themselves or others and take action to get help. By training two-generations of Americans, we are creating a culture engaged in preventing gun violence, resulting in saving more lives and keeping our schools and communities safe, nationwide.

Thank you so much for your support, Sheryl

"Creating a sanctuary, no matter how tiny, to retreat from the hustle and bustle of life offers a perfect opportunity to express your own personal style, showcase collections, and encourage creative juices to flow. Such was the goal of singer-songwriter and nine-time Grammy Award–winner Sheryl Crow, when she decided to transform her garage attic into a writer’s loft and a welcoming hangout and guest retreat for her fellow musician friends"

"Story time!! Being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, I took my time learning to talk. When I was 4 years old I first starting singing then talking. One way I learned how to sing was by performing Picture by Sheryl Crow and Kid Rock. My mom and I would sing together while going to speech therapy. My mom would sing Sheryl Crows part and I would sing the Kid Rocks part. Getting to finally share my story with Sheryl Crow was unbelievable incredible and just amazing!! Thank you Sheryl Crow for letting me share my story with you. You’re nothing but perfect in every way and I thank so much of my life and musical career to you!!! Christmas at Belmont never" - Noah Jack
