I hate to put myself out of a job, but frankly I’d recommend you stop reading and just watch the lyric video for Nelly Furtado‘s Spirit Indestructible. Go ahead, I’ll wait…...ok, welcome back. If that wasn’t inspiring I don’t know what is, and while I could spend the rest of this write-up talking about Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins beat or Nelly’s powerful vocals, I prefer to focus on Spencer West, the double amputee you just watched climb Mt. Kilimajjaro using using only his hands to raise awareness and financial support for clean water projects in Africa. So by all means, pick up a copy of Furtado’s The Spirit Indestructible album when it drops September 18, but while you’re at it make sure you stop by freethechildren.com to find out how you can support West and his mission.
