Musician donates all proceeds of original song to Methodist Family Health

Downloads of the song ‘This is the Time to Shine’ from streaming services will benefit Arkansas children and families who are abandoned, abused and neglected.

Jason Lee Hale and The Personal Space Invaders, a local band made up of musicians from throughout Arkansas, are donating the proceeds of the download of their original song, This is the Time to Shine, to Methodist Family Health.

Proceeds from every download from now until 11:59 p.m. on Fri., Dec. 31, 2021 will be donated to Methodist Family Health.

The song was written for Methodist Family Health’s new SHINE campaign in which the nonprofit encourages Arkansans to share their light with their communities so all may benefit.

“I did not know a lot about Methodist Family Health when they approached me about writing a song for them,” said Jason Lee Hale, who is originally from England, Arkansas and now resides in North Little Rock. “When I learned they are more than 120 years old and work with this state’s children and their families who are struggling with abandonment, abuse and neglect or dealing with psychiatric, behavioral, emotional and spiritual issues, I was inspired to write this song. After talking with my bandmates, we decided to donate all of the proceeds from the song’s downloads until the end of the year.”
