KORN SINGER TALKS SON’S BATTLE WITH DIABETES
Korn singer Jonathan Davis has joined forces with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) for a fundraising campaign titled “So Unfair,” which is also the name of a new song from the band.
The track was inspired by Davis’ youngest son Zeppelin, who was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Davis said, “I want to support this wonderful organization that is fighting tooth and nail to help these little kids out. It’s a horrible disease and I hate seeing kids in pain.”
Davis talks about the song, “It’s a song about when my son got Type 1 diabetes, little Zeppy. He was diagnosed with it at five, so it’s kind of my — me dealing with that. It’s very personal to me so that’s gonna come out and those proceeds of that go to the Junior Diabetes Foundation. I’m trying to do stuff for them to help find a cure.”
Everyone who contributes to the campaign will receive a copy of the song “So Unfair,” and Davis will invite one lucky contributor and a friend to Korn’s private recording studio to create and record a song with the vocalist.
