Great Track for a Great Cause
Be On Our Way is the featured song in the new Forest Whitaker film, Hurricane Season. It has some very inspiring lyrics about overcoming adversity and a very soulful groove. The proceeds from the sale of this single on iTunes are being donated to Brad Pitt's Make It Right Foundation. They build houses in the lower ninth ward - one of the most devastated parts of New Orleans Hurricane Katrina.

Please watch the movie it really reminds you of how much struggle the people of new Orleans went through
The movie and the music are inspiring elements of the real story. This song reminds us that the struggle continues for the majority of the people in New Orleans. I’m glad that I can help by purchasing the track.
About Van Hunt
R&B multi-instrumentalist Van Hunt, born and raised in Dayton, Ohio, grew up surrounded by the pimp lifestyle of his father. A soundtrack of classic soul and contemporary R&B was his backdrop and Hunt immersed himself in the tones and moods of it all. A move from the Midwest to Atlanta in his early twenties allowed Hunt to hone his sound. He'd been playing guitar and writing songs since his teens, so naturally a career in music was on the horizon. Capitol inked him a deal in 2003 and his self-titled debut arrived in February 2004. Appearances on Soul Train, The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, and NPR coincided with the release of Van Hunt's double single "Dust" and "Seconds of Pleasure"; the album peaked within the Top 40 of Billboard's R&B Albums chart. The strong follow-up, On the Jungle Floor, was issued in 2006 and topped the Heatseekers chart but failed to leave much of an impression otherwise. Hunt then shifted to Blue Note; promotional copies of Popular, his first album for the label, were mailed out, but the release was ultimately shelved. Hunt subsequently assembled Use in Case of Emergency, consisting of material from his vault, and provided it as a free download for his followers. In 2011, through his own label, the Sony RED-distributed Godless Hotspot, Hunt issued the bold What Were You Hoping For?, his third proper officially released album. Some crowd-funding assistance facilitated The Fun Rises, The Fun Sets, his relatively subdued fourth album, released on Godless Hotspot 2015. ~ MacKenzie Wilson
