Gregory Porter & Common record ‘Running’ for World Refugee Day

Released globally on World Refugee Day, Gregory and rapper & actor Common were enlisted by their long-term collaborator Keyon Harrold to record the song “Running”.  This is the first installment of an initiative called Compositions for a Cause to advance social justice and humanitarian causes through innovative music collaborations.

Proceeds from “Running” will benefit organizations such as Refugees International (RI), Human Rights First (HRF), and the International Rescue Committee (IRC), as well as other frontline NGOs struggling to address the current crisis. Proceeds will support initiatives such as education for refugee children, emergency relief, and supporting global advocacy for rapid resettlement plans.
