Linda Chorney Composes a Song About The Face of Boston Strong, "Martin"

(Sea Bright, NJ) -- Grammy Nominee Singer/Songwriter Linda Chorney wrote a song in response to the tragic explosions at the Boston Marathon. Her song "Martin" is a tribute to the memory of Martin Richard who was taken too early from this earth on April 15, 2013, at the age of eight. Linda recorded the song and shot the video in Boston with love and support from the community.  The video may be viewed at
"Our hearts are with all of the families of those lost and injured in the Boston Marathon Tragedy. You will all never be forgotten," said Linda Chorney.
The song is available for download at Proceeds will benefit plans to erect a memorial statue in Copley Square of Martin Richard holding the sign "No more hurting people, peace and love". This project is still in development for city approval. As a back-up, an oil portrait of Martin Richard will be presented as a gift to his family through proceeds of this song.
