Switchfoot is enjoying some great success with Fading West, which debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard Top 200, their highest ever behind 2007’s The Beautiful Letdown which peaked at No. 7.
Now, frontman Jon Foreman is taking a break to do some fun work. The Switchfoot frontman spent some time at To Write Love on Her Arms’ Heavy and Light, an annual forum where people can discuss topics in safety. (Though music does plays an integral part of the night.) At the culmination of the event, some of the performers present — including Foreman, Tristan Prettyman, Mary Lambert (sings the hook on a Macklemore track) and more — linked up and performed this version of the Bill Withers classic, “Lean on Me.” Pretty fantastic.
