The song “Hide and Seek” uses the metaphor of a child’s game to describe the upside-down reality of a missing child, yearning to be found by his or her mother.
The single was released January 17 and available for download until April 30th. Every time the song was downloaded, 25 percent of the 99-cent download was donated to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) to help continue its mission of finding missing children and preventing child sexual exploitation.
However, searching for details on how much money may have been raised provided no results.
Listening to this Podcast, there appeared to be no lack of passion by Sylvia McNair for the project. It is interesting she was inspired to participate by the death of Jill Behrman, an Indiana University sophomore and the 19-year-old daughter of Eric and Marilyn Behrman, who was abducted May 31, 2000.
Ironically, the NCMEC does not search for missing children who at the time of their abduction would be over the age of 18.
There are 47 missing children listed on the NCMEC site who have gone missing since May 1st the day after the download was no longer available.
