[ # ] Neil Diamond gives back to Boston!
April 25th, 2013 under Neil Diamond


Sweet Caroline has been played at Fenway park since at least 1997 and every game there since 2002. Well after the Boston Marathon Bombing the song has taken on even more of a special meaning to the strong city. So on Saturday Neil Diamond surprised the people of Boston and sang their song at the Red Sox game during the 8th inning. Since then the 1969 song has been climbing the charts again, selling 19,000 copies since the last Monday. Instead of pocketing the money the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer he is making from the 597% increase of sales in the last week, he Tweeted “Donating these royalties to #OneFund!”
Just in case you needed another reason to love Neil Diamond, now you have one.
If you would like to donate to One Fund, the nonprofit set up to help those most affected by what happened on April 15th, then you can go to the charity’s website and do so.
