On the 22nd of November I will release a (mini-) album of 10 covers in honor and in tribute of my dad who unfortunately passed away on 22nd of February this year. All proceeds will go to the Dutch Kidney Foundation as my dad passed due to malfunctioning kidneys (he died of heart failure, but this was caused by malfunctioning kidneys: when they don't function correctly, they can release a substance in your blood that can cause heart failure, which happened to my dad - they don't know yet why this happens). Since they don't have a cure for this, yet, the Kidney Foundation is subsidizing global research into this phenomena and hopefully my donation can help find a cure for this, so others won't have to die from it.
The 10 track album will consist of covers that I made through the years plus the ones I especially made for my dad (like the one attached). The album will cost $5/€5/£5 and all proceeds will go to aforementioned charity.
Provisional track list: Jezebel, Greensleeves, Das war mein schönster Tanz, Supernova, Radioaktivität, Two Guitars, Amapola, Stand by me (twist), Rihanna's day at the beach (revisited 2022) and Olé Guapa.
So you get 10 great tunes for a fiver and you're supporting the good work the Kidney Foundation does to benefit you and me in the process!
