Miller has verbal commitments from members of Evanescence, Jane's Addiction, 311, Papa Roach, Trapt, Hoobastank, A Perfect Circle and Avril Lavigne's band willing to take part in recording the original song "Forever in Our Hearts."
"I, like most people, was glued to the television watching the horror unfold," Miller says in a statement. "I felt completely powerless. I gave the maximum amount that I could afford, but I still felt like I had done nothing."
Miller's desire to do more led to his writing "Forever in Our Hearts" and contacting friends and colleagues. "I am not a celebrity, but I do know quite a few, and I thought if I could get enough people interested in this song, maybe together we could raise more money and make more of a difference," he says.
A recording session is scheduled for Sunday (Jan. 23), the location of which has not been announced. Miller is hoping to recruit more musicians from any musical genre. Interested artists and their representatives are encouraged to contact email@example.com.
"This is not about any one artist," says Miller. "This is about the whole music community coming together to help."
