Michael McDonald, Willie Nelson and David Hidalgo from Los Lobos have teamed up to perform “Dreams of the San Joaquin”.

Find it below.

“The migrant farm worker is equally responsible, if not more, of maintaining our country’s position as one of the largest agricultural economies in the world,” Michael McDonald said in a statement. “The work that falls directly on their shoulders enables farmers to bring products to our stores and groceries to our tables at the lowest possible price. COVID has disproportionately devastated this quadrant of the American workforce. RAICES and United Farm Workers Union are working hard to raise awareness of vaccines and financial aid to ensure distribution to this COVID-19 hit population. “

“This was a collaboration of love and a prayer for understanding,” added Willie Nelson. “It sends a message of hope that we all need to hear. I’ve always loved Mike’s voice and enjoyed doing this with him and my son Micah. “
