Jen Chapin’s fifth studio album, Reckoning, is full of stories and ideas that would make her father — the late folk-singer, Harry Chapin — quite proud. Collectively, the two have a number of hit songs to their credit, as well as a nonprofit organization working to end hunger and poverty across the globe. Over thirty years ago, Harry Chapin founded World Hunger Year and Jenn continues his philanthropic work today as chair of the board of directors for the renamed organization, Why Hunger. It’s obvious that this family believes in the power of music to heal the world, but if you aren’t yet convinced, “Feed Your Baby” is a song from Jen’s album that might make even the most obstinate listener show a little more care.
