Johannesburg – Prepare yourself world, a storm is coming! Local singer/songwriter STORM is set to release the new anthem for the international hunger relief organisation Rise Against Hunger (formerly Stop Hunger Now). The 18-year-old rising star’s song, called Rise Against Hunger, will be used globally as a call to action to inspire people to do their part to help fight this international crisis. 

Explaining how the partnership came about, STORM said in a press statement: “I wrote a song December last year on a flight to Cape Town, for the opening of a Theme Park in Dubai. However, while I was writing this song I decided I was going to keep it for a bigger and better purpose.” STORM says he knew the song had found it’s purpose when the CEO of Stop Hunger Now SA Saira khan approached him to write an anthem for the organisation. 

The single, which was produced by Prime Circle drummer Dale Schnettler, is ready to be released worldwide, with the CEO of Stop Hunger Now in Italy already approaching STORM to release the track in Italian as well.
