    Blue Élan Records has been a believer in the mission of the Alliance for Children’s Rights for a long time. Over the years, we’ve been privileged to release two-holiday albums and various holiday singles to bring attention to the Alliance and the good that it does.

    Precious to Me, an album executive produced by Blue Élan Records' very own artist Colin Devlin and label co-founder Kirk Pasich, revisits classic songs from over the years contributed by Grammy award-winning artists Soul Asylum, Gerry Beckley, Ozomatli, and more. Precious to Me includes songs that the artists love—and that we thought would be fun to cover—“Call Me the Breeze,” “Big Rock Candy Mountain,” “Always Midnight,” “Bennie and the Jets,” “The Sun Ain’t’ Gonna Shine Anymore,” “Willie and the Hand Jive,” and “Stuck in the Middle with You.  Others are songs that we also love, but that we thought said something in their own way about helping children—“Runaway Train,” “It’s a Hard Life,” “You Make Loving Fun,” “Crazy for You,” “In This Life,” “Crystal Blue Persuasion,” “Precious to Me,” and “When the Children Cry.”  Something within each of them resonated with the Alliance’s mission, with caring for children, and with wanting to make the future a better place for all children.

    With this album, we hope to raise more awareness for the wonderful work the Alliance for Children’s Rights continues to do. We hope you enjoy it, and know that by listening, you’re helping the Alliance for Children’s Rights protect and advocate for the rights of the most vulnerable members of our society every day - foster children. For direct donations and more information about The Alliance for Children’s rights please visit
