Friends of ailing musician Andy Mackie have produced a tribute video to thank him for his years of support for children's music programs.
Mackie, 72, is seriously ill and under care in a facility in Jackson, Mich.
The song “Angels Walk Among Us” originally was written and posted on YouTube last month by Port Townsend musician Jack Reid, a close friend and associate of Mackie's.
On Oct. 23, it was updated.
Reid rerecorded the song along with a new video presentation, where several Port Townsend friends of Mackie's joined in for a verse.
The six-minute video can be viewed at http://tinyurl.com/3b9vugr.
Participants included professional musicians Robert Force, Matt Sircely and George Rezendes but also featured several of Mackie's former students who are now teenagers.
The video was made at Rezendes' studio, Toolshed Sound. Read More
