Boys & Girls Clubs Present Tribute to Fallen Police Officers
After the community experienced the loss of three of St. Petersburg’s finest, children from the community are using the tragedy to spread hope.
In honor of fallen St. Petersburg police officers Jeffrey Yaslowitz, Tom Baitinger and David Crawford, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Suncoast (BGCS) has teamed up with Big3Records, SubbZero Entertainment, LLC and TASCO to create the tribute song “Let’s Get Together.” The song is available for download on iTunes and serves as a fundraiser for the officer’s families.
The project was led by BGCS Conservatory Artist-in-Residence and national recording artist Alex “LX” Harris after he discussed the tragedy with Herbert A. Murphy, Director for the Royal Theatre Boys & Girls Clubs Arts Academy, and 60 students. The song is sung by children from the BGCS.
Officers Yaslowitz, Baitinger, and Crawford were killed in the line of duty in January. The crime occurred just blocks away from where many BGCS children live. The song is available for download on iTunes for $0.99, and the video can be downloaded for $1.99. All the proceeds will go directly to helping out the families of the fallen officers.
