  • (1888PressRelease) December 10, 2010 - New York, NY - International rap star BANGS, best known for his underground smash single, "Take U To Da Movies" (which became a viral sensation on YouTube, currently at over 4 million hits), is in the holiday spirit. His catchy new holiday single, "A Christmas Story," is poised to continue his wild online success, but this time with a twist. A percentage of the proceeds from the new single will be donated to the International Rescue Committee (IRC), which responds to the world's worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. The IRC offers lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster.

    BANGS became intimately familiar with the IRC's reach when his own family had to flee the war torn Sudan region of East Africa. The family escaped to Egypt, and then to Australia, where he now lives. "I love my country Sudan and Africa; I want to do everything I can to help bring more attention to the suffering there. There is no Christmas in Sudan. Thank you to all my friends and supporters here in Australia, the U.S. and all over the world."
