Musicians to record song for tornado relief (with video)

Local musicians plan to record a song and send the proceeds of its sale to tornado relief in Illinois.

David Howie, who wrote the song "Gifford and Washington" with Lou DiBello, described the plans on Monday evening when the two performed during The News-Gazette Sports Page show at the Esquire in downtown Champaign.

Gifford and Washington were badly damaged by tornadoes on Nov. 17.

Howie said musicians would record the song on the day after Christmas at Champaign's Pogo Studio.

Plans are to make it available at online music services, with the income going to tornado relief.

Howie and DiBello perform as The Live Jukebox Show, an all-request show with more than 100 appearances a year in East Central Illinois.
