Chorus for a Cause: Jordan & Sunny Shipley Co-Write Song to Make a Difference

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 10:47 PM CDT
It's a rare side that most people don't get to see. Inside their new home, Jordan Shipley and his wife Sunny, singing a song they wrote together.

"We've known each other forever," said Shipley, a former University of Texas wide receiver. "Both of us have always loved music."

And because of it they're striking a cord to make a difference. Jordan and Sunny co-wrote "Don't Let Me Sink", now on iTunes. The proceeds benefit Holden Uganda, a non-profit building fresh water wells in Africa.

"The main goal is to raise enough money," said Shipley. "Other than that hopefully people enjoy the music that's obviously important. And Sunny is so talented as far as song writing."

The lyrics came naturally. It's a song pulled straight from their personal experiences.

"He and I had been through a lot through our first year of marriage," said Sunny. "We had a really terrible wreck. I broke my neck then off the bat he got hurt and had to go through surgery. So we were like 'gaw lee when it rains it pours'. I think the song means we could have everything go wrong but we are still blessed."

The two have come a long way since they first met at the age of 13 in Burnet. From high school to the 40 Acres to now going to the extra mile for a good cause.

"We don't feel like we are a legacy," said Sunny.  "We feel like Holden and those people have done so much. We don't feel like it's us at all. We feel like we have a platform to help them."

It's a cause that has long tugged at their heart strings, and now these [guitar] strings can make an impact, too.
