The American Humane Association Partners with Shara Strand for New Campaign

New York, NY – January 12, 2013 – D1 Music is proud to announce an exciting partnership with the American Humane Association in the forthcoming launch of Shara Strand’s second single, “I Will Carry You”, written by Mike Greenly (lyricist) and Paul Guzzone (composer.)

American Humane AssociationAmerica’s new pop princess, Shara Strand, is a singularly skilled artist. From her debut EP, “Born Tonight”, came her first single release — written by Shara, herself — “Jekyll or Hyde.” The song is now available in Pop and Live Acoustic versions, with soon-to-be-released Dance Remixes by D1 Music (Peter McLean and Keith Kemper) and other internationally renowned FIX DJ/Remixers as Wayne Numan, Mike Rizzo and Paul Goodyear. The song may also be experienced with Shara’s official music video on YouTube. Shara will begin touring a number of US Markets in 2013, helping more and more listeners to discover her.

“I Will Carry You” is currently planned for launch by the spring of 2013. It is a song of unconditional love, support, caring and loyalty. Obviously that sentiment applies to the loving bonds and feelings from one person to another. But our caring as human beings extends beyond just to each other. Shara, for example, cares deeply about the welfare of earth’s animals, in general, and specifically her own adorable pomeranian, Coco, who recently celebrated his first birthday.

That is why she — and the entire D1 Music team — are gratified to be able to use the launch of Shara’s second single to help bring further attention to, and to help raise funds for, the highly respected American Humane Association. (

About the American Humane Association

The mission of American Humane Association is to ensure the welfare, wellness and well-being of children and animals, and to unleash the full potential of the bond between humans and animals to the mutual benefit of both. Its goal is to measurably, demonstrably and significantly increase the number of children and animals who are protected from harm — and the number of humans and animals whose lives are enriched — through direct action, thought leadership, policy innovation, and expansion of proven, effective programs.

Since 1877, the historic American Humane Association has been at the forefront of every major advancement in protecting children, pets and farm animals from abuse and neglect. Today they also lead the way in understanding human-animal interaction and its role in society.

The AHA already reaches millions of people each day through groundbreaking research, education, training and services that span a wide network of organizations, agencies and businesses. It is Shara’s hope, however, to encourage her fans to get involved directly in supporting the organization and its goals.

That is why, in addition to sharing their song royalties from “I Will Carry You” with the AHA, Shara and the D1 Music team are planning a very engaging social media awareness campaign focused on the song and its partnership with the AHA. Part of this initiative will be a fun photo contest open to fans across the country … with financial contributions made by Shara and the D1 Team specifically in honor of the winning contestant and their pets, who will be recognized by name.
