Award-winning recording artist & MDF community member Eric Hutchinson released the song "Hands" on his new album "Modern Happiness" in partnership with MDF! Eric developed the song & video to share his family story & help raise awareness about DM & critically-needed funds for MDF.
"hands" is the most personal song from my new album, Modern Happiness, which I wrote as a tribute to my dad who is living with myotonic muscular dystrophy, or DM. DM is a disease that has affected my dad and my family for over 35 years, but was never something we really talked about. “hands” is a song about being seen and heard as a disabled person.
I teamed up with the Myotonic Dystrophy Foundation to create this video as part of a campaign to raise awareness of the disease and how we can get together to fight it.
