Cedar Breaks Band Pledges Proceeds to Make a Difference
SALT LAKE CITY, July 17, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Cedar Breaks® is pledging all the proceeds from their music and books for a month to help those in need in these trying times.
One band member mentioned a song and music video that they released in 2019 that prompted them to take action. “We released a song called 'Myst' that had an almost eerie prediction to what we are going through in 2020. Because of this, we became determined to do more than just sing about the issues that we are facing.”
Myst is a song of hope and faith for America. It speaks of awareness and the opportunity to see a need and fill it. Myst is a rallying call to join the crusade for tolerance and understanding. Cedar Breaks believes Myst spells out the most needed message in our society today. It is a song of hope and faith for America. The music video has been playing in several festivals, including the International Christian Film and Music Festival in 2020, receiving a nomination for “Best Music Video” and “Best Song Writer”.
In the Myst music video, the story is told through a dancer metaphorically raising the 'myst' that surrounds us. Showing that as we stand in the service of others with acts of kindness, the air clears and the momentum grows. Others then grasp the vision, join in, and become a strong force for doing good and positive change. The message is powerful and timeless. Cedar Break’s dancer, Chanel Kostich, is highlighted in the video.

The Band is also offering a free song for which they will donate one dollar for each download to those in need, up to 25,000 downloads, from their websites at www.cedarbreaksband.com and www.upondestinyssong.com.
The band hopes that other artists will follow suit.
