Cee Lo Green, the singer and host of “The Voice”, recently changed the lyrics to a popular hit and rewrote it for volunteer firefighters.
Cee Lo Green’s mother was a volunteer firefighter as well!
The new song is titled “Thank You”…the interesting thing is that the original song title is “Fuck You”. Kind of ironic…
Green has a personal interest — his Atlanta area family credits volunteer firefighters with pulling his mother from a serious car wreck, and she had served as a firefighter herself.
“I always wanted to be a fireman, like a lot of kids,” he said, but added that he didn’t want to narrow the focus to just his personal tie. He called the Duracell project an effort to benefit “a noble cause.”
The song is part of the publicity behind the Duracell’s Power Those Who Protect Us battery donation program.
Give back to volunteer firefighters with Duracell’s Power Those Who Protect Us battery donation program.
