BUFFALO, NEW YORK (WBEN 930) - A local singer and producer are teaming up to raise money for the National Wildlife Federation, as it helps animals affected by the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Scott Celani's song "Make it Up to You" is the theme song of the National Wildlife Federation's "Make it Up to Them Campaign."

Matt Young helped produce the song with Celani, and was inspired by the images shown in the last few weeks.

"Face it, if you're a person and there's a disaster, you have the option of moving away from it. If you're an animal, you're helpless. You don't know how to avoid an oil slick, and this song says this is our way of reaching out in a way you can't help yourself," says Young.

Young says it's not your typical fundraising song.

"It started out as a ballad, believe it or not, but we decided to pick it up and give it an uptempo kind of feeling," says Young. "If you listen to the whole song, it's got a countryish, Traveling Wilburys style, giving a friendliness to it."

Young says the images have been ghastly and you hope to never see something like this in your lifetime.
