Paul McCartney is lending his voice, literally, to Tony Bennett's Voices Against Violence campaign.
The grass roots anti-gun violence initiative is asking supporters to text MYVOICE to 877877. Those texting will receive a taped voice message in return from McCartney and will also be connected directly to a U.S. Senate office to voice support for proposed gun control initiatives.
Bennett and his son and manager Danny Bennett put together Voices Against Violence in conjunction with the Brady Campaign To Prevent Gun Violence, with more than 10,000 text messages already logged.
VAV has also received support from Alec Baldwin, Gloria Estefan, Mia Farrow, Josh Groban and others.
The Senate is slated to vote on the proposal at 4 p.m. today (April 17).
