MartyGasper's picture

In just 72 hours time, 24+ collegiate a cappella groups spanning across the state have all agreed to appear on the Compact Disc set, as well as, have pledged financial support from each member of their groups to fund the initial costs and to provide donations.

On the official web site, ForTodayCD.com, Bolling states, “In the wake of the recent tragedy on Virginia Tech's campus, it is my hope that the gesture of unity shown by the groups appearing on this CD, the support of unity shown by the a cappella community by supporting this CD, and the strength of unity from people around the world donating to receive a copy of this CD will make a difference in the lives of the family, friends, students, faculty, and staff affected by the events at Virginia Tech on April 16th 2007.”

Thanks to the generous contributions from the groups involved, 100% of all purchases and donations made towards the project will be given directly to the Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund setup by the Virginia Tech Foundation and to Hokies United at Virginia Tech.

Purchases and donations can be made via the official web site for the project at ForTodayCD.com and more information can be found there regarding the project and the official track listing.
