Song Rallies Community in Finding Jordan Hickey Killers
SAN DIEGO, CA -- "Sometimes the simplest of things, like a song, can rally a community to make a difference," explained singer/songwriter Ukulele Ray, about the original song he dedicated to fighting crime and finding the killers of developmentally-challenged Jordan Hickey, 21 of National City, CA.
Last April, Jordan Hickey was brutally murdered while riding his bicycle home from his girlfriend's house. Two suspects were arrested yesterday in Chula Vista, CA. Their apprehension has been attributed to leads and information from a rallied community.
"I was personally pulled into the picture, since Jordan was a family-member to a very close friend of mine," Ray said. "I was asked to perform the song at Jordan's memorial, where I dedicated it, and helped rally community support."
"The song helped heighten awareness in the community, keeping the topic alive," said Michelle Robinson, Jordan Hickey's aunt. "Keeping the case active is critical in finding the killers... and the song was a huge part in keeping this alive in the community and stimulating leads."
"My Song of Hope" is available on iTunes and AMAZON, with proceeds going to fight crime in National City, CA.
