Sammy Hagar, Foo Fighters' Rami Jaffeel, Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger and a number of other musicians were special guests to a group of Afghan child musicians who go by the names Miraculous Love Kids and Girl With a Guitar on an awesome cover of Steve Miller’s “Fly Like an Eagle”. The girls, along with actor Kiefer Sutherland and American musician, and organizer of the non-profit Miraculous Love Kids, Lanny Cordola will appear on ABC’s GMA3 Tuesday at 1 p.m. ET to discuss the song and their mission.
The group dedicates this song to the memory of the nearly 100 Afghan girls who died in a school bombing attack in Kabul earlier this month.
“I’m proud of what you’re doing,” Hagar said in a statement to the girls. “Stay strong and fly like an eagle…”
“The simple yet powerful message behind ‘Fly Like an Eagle’ has never been more relevant and important, especially in war-torn, poverty-stricken places like Afghanistan,” Cordola added. “With its urgent call to ‘feed the babies who have no food to eat, shoe the children with no shoes on their feet, house the people living in the street,’ the eagle surveys the landscape and realizes that none of us can truly be free until we address the most pressing matters of the human condition — food, clothing, and shelter.”
The girls previously recorded a rendition of the Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams” last year with members of Rage Against the Machine and others joining in, as well as a cover of Brian Wilson’s “Love and Mercy” with Wilson joining in remotely.
