The world needs some hope right now, and if there’s one song out there that has given generations hope, it’s the beautiful hymn “Amazing Grace.”
In that spirit, Upon Wings has released a version of “Amazing Grace,” with music by Corey Lowery of Seether, Saint Asonia, Stuck Mojo, Stereomud, Eye Empire, Dark New Day and more. We hope it brings you some hope and comfort during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
We’re giving the song as a free download for the month of May, too, while encouraging you to donate to your favorite charity.
Just fill out the form below, and we’ll send it your way.
Some of our favorite charities include:

Hey, loves, hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this difficult time.
Anne recently spoke with two great publications, Metal Pulp and Paper Magazine and Music Madness Magazine, about everything from her musical inspirations of Judas Priest and Iron Maiden to what would make up Upon Wings’ “mission statement.”
“We write our own music, and everything really does come from our heart, as cliche as that may sounds,” Anne told Music Madness. “I really hope that the music in some way helps people.”
Like many others, Upon Wings is disheartened to see how the coronavirus (COVID-19) is impacting so many good people around the world.
Some people are putting up Christmas lights to try to add some much-needed cheer to the world right now, and the Hallmark Channel is also running Christmas movies again.
Seeing this bit of Christmas cheer has inspired Upon Wings bring back our Christmas giveaway and give you a free Christmas song. Hopefully it will bring you a little bit of love during this difficult time.
Just fill out the form below and indicate which Christmas song you would like, and we’ll send it your way. The options are “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel / God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and “O Holy Night,” which you can hear below.

+”Upon Wings EP review in Metal Hammer: “Hypnotic gothic rock that flits between symphonic and operatic metal while showcasing Anne Autumn Erickson’s dramatic vocals. Less bombastic than Tarja and not quite as flowery as early Within Temptation, but with a charm that is all its own.”
Upon Wings, ‘Afterlife,’ the Final Song of the Decade Played on Europe’s Dark Metal Radio and American Ladies Metal Brunch
This is so cool! Thanks to Europe’s Dark Metal Radio and American Ladies Metal Brunch for spinning Upon Wings, “Afterlife,” right before midnight as the year 2020 began. It’s so neat to think that “Afterlife” was the final song of the decade played on the station. Thank you!
