Donations for blues master Sonny Rhodes, the vocalist in the Firefly theme song, have helped a lot, but he's still in a bad place, physically and financially. From Brian Wiser:
The donations and supportive emails did make a big difference in a variety of ways and Sonny continues to be very grateful. He's still not in good shape with health or finances, and continues to perform as much as he can to raise money.
Some of the donated money has been used for medical tests. From what I was told, most of the needed surgeries have not yet happened. When I saw him a few weeks ago on the set of Browncoats Redemption, he looked a little weak and naturally wasn't moving around too well, but made a beautiful performance for the film and realized a dream of his to be in a movie. This experience made him quite happy
Because donations have slowed a lot, they have disabled PayPal donations to save on fees, and the physical address for donations will remain. Sonny's MySpace page receives periodic updates.
The address is:
2974 Delta Fair Blvd
Antioch, CA 94509
If you can help, please do so. The folks who met him during the Browncoat Cruise can attest that he's a wonderful and generous person as well as being an amazing artist. You can see updates and send him messages through his MySpace page.
