POSNER’S WALK ACROSS AMERICA CAMPAIGN
The singer is spending 2019 walking his way through America. His travel across the country was inspired by the passing of his friend Avicii and his father. His father lost the battle of life to cancer. The singer intends to walk from New Jersey to California. He also plans to release a new song after crossing a new State line.
Mike has been walking 10 to 15 miles a day.
” It just re-frames your life when you accept death,” he said, ” You start to go through life and do the things that are meaningful to you. It sort of gives a blank check, doesn’t it?”
On his website, Posner says that the goal for his Walk Across America are to ” leave each town as we go through a little bit better than when we arrived”, spending time “Compassionately listening to people with as much as my attention as possible”, “love everybody”, “sing for people” and ” Enjoy where I am in my journey.”
