The Petite Savanne Primary School, the Coulibistrie Primary School and the Dominica Infirmary have benefited from a $1,300 donation made available through the generosity of ‘The Look- Us Band’.
Member of the band, Ronald Charles, told Dominica News Online said the donation was made possible through proceeds from the sales of CD’s from the band’s popular song, ‘Dominica We Shall Rise Again,’ which was released following the passage of Tropical Storm Erika.
“On the 26 of October as part of the launching of the DVD, ‘Dominica We Shall Rise Again’ the Look-Us Band donated to the Petite Savanne Primary School $500, to the Coulibistrie Primary School $500 and $300 to the Dominica Infirmary,” he said.
Charles, who penned the song, said it was written to provide inspiration as the country struggles to cope in the wake of Tropical Storm Erika which devastated the island on August 27.
Following the release of the song during the first week in September, the band officially launched the CD single outside the Prevo Cinemall in Roseau, on September 16.
He is encouraging persons to purchase a copy of the video which is available at his office on 7 Cross Street, at New Age Photo, from the Look-Us Band and the office of Q95 in Roseau.
A donation of $25 and above is encouraged to purchase a copy of the video.
The song is also performed by Lead Vocalist of the Band, Jerd Dorsette, and was produced by Ali Rolle of Epic Lab Studio in Roseau, while the video was produced by Dr. Alwin Bully.
