United State Of Texas
The before and after content reflects the devastation this town suffered. The Mckinney’s felt they had the ability to help beyond just a private donation so they reached out to friends and peers. In a short period of time they produced a video, put together a benefit concert and created several ways to make a donation.
Mark McKinney never imagined this would be the video to accompany his song “United State of Texas” but he is so proud of the HEROS of Port Aransas and through out Texas.
