Steve Maloney has commissioned composer, lyricist and vocalist Jeanie Cunningham for the Take Me Home Huey song. Cunningham has composed a beautiful song about the role that Huey helicopters have played in conflict zones. It is incorporated into the Take Me Home Huey documentary film and has already been released in advance. You can contribute to the Take Me Home Huey project by buying the song on i-Tunes here.
Jeanie Cunningham is an American performer, composer and songwriter. She has toured with Lionel Richie, David Crosby and worked closely with Ike and Tina Turner. Jeanie was anonymously responsible for a number of musical wakeup broadcasts to Space Shuttle astronauts from NASA’s mission control during the late 1980s and early ’90s, which earned her the nickname, “The Most Flown Unknown”.
In 2002, Cunningham was commissioned to write, record and perform a tribute song from the country Aruba to the United States in commemoration of 9/11. The song, “We Will Remember” has since been used to commemorate memorials for Memorial Day, Veterans Day and Pearl Harbor Day as well as for 9/11, making it a 21st-century anthem.
