The moment I saw this video, I started posting it to my site before it had even finished. Cee Lo Green, host of the hit television show The Voice and singer of the massive hit single "Forget You" took that hit song and rewrote the words to use as a tribute to volunteer firefighters everywhere.
I find it very interesting that Cee Lo Green catapulted himself into the limelight with a song about his teen angst that features explicit and suggestive lyrics, and now he is turning that attention in many ways into a way to spread the wealth emotionally and socially. The original song itself is incredibly addictive, and the "clean" version has been all over the radio. The original YouTube video with the explicit lyrics has over 54 million views as of this posting.
Cee Lo Green's tribute to firefighters is part of an effort by the Duracell company entitled Power Those Who Protect Us. Yet another great cause to support.
