Neil Diamond Sings ‘Freedom Song’ For Boston

Neil Diamond is continuing to show his support for Boston Marathon bombing victims, this time with a new song benefiting charities One Fund Boston and the Wounded Warrior Project.

“Freedom Song (They’ll Never Take Us Down),” due out July 2, comes after the singer surprised Bostonians with a performance at a Red Sox game in the week following the bombings.
