Eddie Vedder – “Skipping”

Every Mother Counts

Model Christy Turlington Banks has a charitable organization called Every Mother Counts, which combats maternal mortality. She also has a robust rolodex which she put in service of a 19-song benefit compilation featuring contributions by very famous people — from Bono to Bowie to Rita Wilson — raising funds and awareness for her cause. You heard Beck’s “Corrina, Corrina” the other day; here is Eddie Vedder’s “Skipping.” It is EdVed acoustic in inspirationally heartfelt/strum mode, with a child saying “check, check … Daddy!” at the outset for bonus sentimentality.
