As we previously reported Cee-Lo Green has revamped his massive hit “F**k You” into a positive tribute remix — “Thank You”. Dedicated to the brave men and women volunteer firefighters. Green joined Duracell and the National Volunteer Fire Council for the “Power Those Who Protect Us” program to help support and raise awareness for volunteer firefighters across the U.S.
The Lady Killer’s connection to the campaign is personal. His mother served as a volunteer firefighter and when he was 16 years old, a group of local volunteer firefighters pulled her to safety following a near-fatal car accident.
Cee-Lo explained why he decided to get involved. “As entertainers in the public light, we have a unique opportunity to raise awareness for causes close to our hearts through our greatest passion: music,” he stated. “That’s why I am proud to join the ‘Power Those Who Protect Us’ cause, to tell my own story and shed light on the tireless sacrifices our nation’s volunteers make each and every day to protect their communities.”
