Salt of the Earth

Salt of the EarthThis new, collaborative cover of the Rolling Stones’ “Salt of the Earth” is in honor of ALL the hard working people around the world who deserve to be heard, to receive a living wage, to have a home of their own.

The Hard Working People Project was produced by Sara Hickman to bring awareness to the fact so many of us are working tirelessly and courageously during this time of covid. From mail carriers, nurses, doctors, grocery store employees, mom & pop shop owners, garbage collectors, non-profits, protestors, teachers, neighbors… you. Sara & The Hard Working People Project wanted to say we see you, we hear you, we love you, we are you. We are all in this scary time together and music can bring us hope, healing and love.

Proceeds from the digital audio track download benefit a number of non-profits. Learn more about their work at
