Description

What Can I Do?


When you’re down and out and your friends are gone

When the holidays are here and you’re all alone

How can I help you?

If you’re hungry and homeless and need a hand,

I can pick you up, I can understand

How can I help you?

No, it doesn’t matter what time of year

Just call on me and I’ll be here

It could be December or the Fourth of July

Don’t worry about a thing, ‘cause I’ll be standing by

What can I do?

Tell me, what can I do?

To help you, my friend

All I’m asking, is what can I do?

 “What Can I Do?” is the latest in a long series of uplifting songs from the Grammy Award winning gospel group, The Blind Boys of Alabama and their producer Chris Goldsmith, and originally appeared on their 2014 album “Talkin’ Christmas” (with the Taj Mahal singing along).  The song implores people to become more involved in helping a friend, or a group, or a community, in any way they can.

Governing well is one of the most profound ways to help our communities.

And when it’s exceptional, it has the biggest reach of all.

The Blind Boys and their co-writers want to be part of a movement that catalyzes more people.  To this end, they gift us this anthem to use in our work here and across the country.

 

Join us January 12th, 13th and 14th, 2017, to find out how we can grow exceptional boards, engage our communities and use “What Can I Do?” to support our work.
