Gus Wolman - WCCMP closed the publishing side of the business some time ago due to health concerns. However, we have been contacted by an artist from Orlando, Florida, that is going to release the song that we have been working on for so long ("You're Coming Home With Me"), as well as several other songs from the WCCMP catalog. This school shooting song was written and produced by Will Gunnell. Will wrote the song from the perspective of a "victim", which is extremely unique. The song is hard hitting and references that "thoughts and prayers won't get it done" . . . which we view as a very positive statement. While prayer is indeed "all powerful", and surely needed, the country has been ravaged by too many people who want to walk into a school and start killing students. Will wrote this very important song in order to "raise awareness of school shootings", and we pray that it will. Peace and God's Grace.
