With the global health crisis seemingly growing bleaker every day as positive coronavirus case numbers increase exponentially across the board in many states and countries, many are looking for ​light amidst all of the darkness to help guide them through. Heeding that call, KC and the Sunshine Band have released their single 'Put A Little Love In Your Heart' in hopes that it can bring some happiness and promote togetherness amongst fans during such a troubling time for many everywhere.

Harry Wayne "KC" Casey sat down recently with 'Fox News' to discuss the new single and his plans to promote happiness amongst listeners. The 15-person group, headed by KC, has garnered over 100 million record sales worldwide and has broken records previously set by The Beatles for constant number one hits. KC explained that the new single, a rendition of Jackie DeShannon's original track of the same name, came to him following the tragic 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

"You know, it's interesting. The song came about in my head back in 2012 when the tragic Sandy Hook shootings happened and we were on tour somewhere and that night I just felt compelled to do this song because I felt like everyone needed to hear about love that night," he told the publication of what drew him to remake the already well-known track in his own image to be a comforting song in a troubling time for the nation.

However, as the health crisis transpired in 2020, KC was re-compelled to act, "When all this started up, I was sitting at my computer one night. I was just getting overwhelmed by all the unrest and the protests and everything that was going on along with the pandemic and I just started lip-syncing for the song on my phone and doing this video of it. And I put that on my page because I just felt, you know, we need more love in our hearts. And that's what we really need these days."

"And I just got such a response, not only from my friends and family but just from people within the industry and how much it had moved them and touched them," KC explained of the massive success the song garnered, which led him to give it the sentimental attachment it enjoys to him and millions of others today. "So I felt that I needed to do more and to release it nationally and get as much exposure with the song as possible. And the message."
