Fans of The Young and the Restless' Doug Davidson (Paul Williams) are getting a double whammy of good news: not only is the actor featured in the music video for his friend Rick Springfield's (ex-Noah Drake, General Hospital, new song "The Wall Will Fall," but also every download of the meaningful tune will benefit charity!
Filmed in quarantine and featuring stars like Davidson and Ellen DeGeneres, "The Wall Will Fall" was born out of Springfield and Vance DeGeneres' YouTube series, Ultimate Mini-Series: The 60-Second Guide to Songwriting with a Partner. The show started off as "a way for the two friends to have some fun online while home-sheltering during the current Covid-19 pandemic. But what began as a way to share a few laughs with their online communities grew into a popular multi-episode series and produced a rousing, uplifting universal anthem of hope and love."
All proceeds from the song will benefit FeedingAmerica.org, whose mission is to feed America's hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage the country in the fight to end hunger.
