Taylor Swift is celebrating a very special landmark today. The mega-crossover artist just turned 30. In celebration Something Merry gathered some very talented artists to cover Swift’s instant hit album Red. Dan Campbell of The Wonder Years has a particularly powerful rendition of “All Too Well”.
The compilation by Something Merry is appropriately named ReRed. What’s better than listening to a bunch of your favorite artists cover Taylor Swift though? It’s that it benefits a good cause.
All of the proceeds to the comp go to Equal Justice Initiative. EJI is an organization that works to end mass incarceration, excessive punishment, and racial inequality.
ReRed features 19 different artists and bands. Artists began tweeting about their personal songs on the ReRed.
