Bill Wither’s 1972 No. 1 hit, “Lean on Me,” has often served as a soundtrack of hope during charity events and times of need.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, we are in a time of need.
Tenille Townes recruited a handful of her musically gifted friends—Abby Anderson, Kassi Ashton, Keelan Donovan, Alex Hall, Adam Hambrick and Caylee Hammack—for an at-home cover of “Lean On Me.”
“These crazy times right now make me so grateful for my friends, for music and the way we are still all connected,” says Tenille. “It brought me so much joy hearing everybody’s voices come together on this song and it’s my hope that it brings people a little joy and comfort out there when they hear it. We really all do need somebody to lean on, especially right now. It was really fun to sing this song together across the distance!”
