2010 has been an amazing year. 17 DEGREES AIN'T NOTHING, a film by Dane Jefferson and me (Carlton Mackey) debuted last week on the big screen at Atlanta's Historic Plaza Theater as part of Wonderroot's Local Filmmaker's night.

This film brings to the forefront issues surrounding homelessness in Atlanta. It places the story of 5 local individuals in the context of a global conversation about the economy, the recession, and the real life impact of it. It is a glimpse into their lives and a peering into our own.

This film was scored from original musical contributions of 5 amazing local producers/musicians. The SOUNDTRACK from the film is available for download at the link below. We want you to listen to this music, share it with friends, chill to it, read, burn, relax, and everything else that is meant to be experienced alongside great music...BUT WE ALSO WANT YOU TO BUY IT.

50% of the Proceeds from the Sale of this album will go to the OPEN DOOR COMMUNITY -a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization proclaiming the Beloved Community through loving relationships with some of the most neglected and outcast of God’s children: the homeless and our sisters and brothers who are in prison.
(i.e. for every album that is downloaded for $10 online, $5 goes to the OPEN DOOR and only $1 goes to each of the 5 producers)
This is not a lot of money for either the artists or the organization, but every single purchase makes a difference. Help us make a difference.
