The Warrior by James L. King III is an exciting, driving David-Foster-esque sports fanfare with harmonic fourths and professional “drop”-style voicings. It’s a great opener or closer for any event!
Originally, all revenue from the sale of The Warrior went towards covering the cost of cancer treatments for Nicky Sorbelli of Key West, FL. Nicky passed away February 17, 2016 at the age of 10 after a courageous and difficult nine-month battle against an extremely aggressive T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma. Nicky’s family has requested that future earnings from this piece go towards his sister’s college fund, which was depleted during Nicky’s illness.
