The song “With Our Love” has been shared with fans and the public on his 62nd birthday, with one hundred percent of the proceeds earmarked for the charities the Racehorse Sanctuary & Rocking Horse Children’s Charity and Seraphim 12 Foundation. The composition was co-written and performed by Perry Margouleff, whose friendship with Rodgers dates back to over twenty years ago when they met in the U.K. while Margouleff was performing with The Pretty Things. They have collaborated many times over the years.
All of these charities are organizations Rodgers has offered significant support to in the past, in fact he is a Patron of one while Perry Margouleff is a Senior Board Member of the other.
Rodgers shared, “Horses are such a powerful part of human development and have been since the early ages. We humans owe them so much. My wife Cynthia and I have visited both sanctuaries and can’t imagine any of these healthy vibrant beings being sent off to die. Especially Seraphim 12’s ‘Daisy,’ who was to be slaughtered for human consumption at four months of age! Or ex-racehorse ‘Mr. Streaky,’ who due to human error developed anxiety and fear issues which now after eight years he is finally starting to overcome, and in doing so is helping the autistic and inner city kids who visit the sanctuary. Blues great Willie Dixon believed that ‘Once we know better we can do better’…so now that we know better, let’s do better.”
