Saints Win NFC Championship, Headed to the Superbowl!

It’s hard to believe that just five years ago, the New Orleans Superdome was a scene of unimaginable misery--a ramshackle refuge for survivors of Hurricane Katrina.

But on Sunday night, we witnessed a complete turnaround. Confetti poured down over the raucous crowd as the Saints topped the Minnesota Vikings 31-28 in OT to win the NFC Championship and a shot at their first Superbowl title.

In 2006, U2 & Green Day performed their cover of “The Saints Are Coming†to celebrate the re-opening of the Superdome and the Saints’ first home game since the devastation. The song was made available to download with all proceeds benefiting Music Rising, and we raised over $1 million! Now, the song is being played during game breaks and has become an anthem for the team.

Gone are the days when fans used to dub the team “Aints†and show up at games with brown paper bags over their heads. With passion, persistence, and tireless heart, our boys did it for the Big Easy. Onward to Miami and the Superbowl!

 

Music Rising co-founder Bob Ezrin offers some words of congratulations:

Ain’t it just the sweetest!
My heart, my soul and my stomach were all in NOLA tonight!!!!
I have tears in my eyes and a huge smile on my face!
Superbowl here we come!!!

Love,

Bob
