In between stealing the show at the Grammys with Gwyneth Paltrow, starring as a voice coach on NBC’s smash reality hit, ‘The Voice,’ and rocking out as a ‘Saturday Night Live’ musical guest, singer Cee Lo Green also made time to contribute to a great cause.
To help Duracell’s “Power of Those Who Protect Us” program to benefit the National Volunteer Fire Council, the Grammy Award-winning artist re-recorded his hit song, ‘Forget You’ as ‘Thank You’ to honor volunteer firemen. The always-catchy new tune (which you can download for free) sings the praises of firefighters everywhere and thanks them for all they do.
The former Gnarls Barkley singer has strong personal ties to this specific cause. Green’s mother was a volunteer firefighter—in fact, Green revealed to MTV that she was one of the first African-American female firefighters in Georgia. Volunteer firemen are also credited with saving his mother’s life after a devastating car accident when Green was 18.
