Downriver teacher's song aids Sandy Hook charities
A Taylor music teacher and Wyandotte resident, Dave Martin, has penned "20 Beautiful Children," a tribute to the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting. Martin recorded the song with a group of area children and is offering it for download on his website to anyone who makes a donation to a Sandy Hook charity such as Healing Newtown, Sandy Hook School Support Fund or Supporting Newtown Teachers.
