Choice Hotels launches music service, to donate $1 per download
Silver Spring-based Choice Hotels International is launching a music service. The hospitality giant has committed to donate $1 to a featured cause or charity each time a customer downloads original music from its Web site as a part of the company's Choice Hotels Music campaign. Singer Holly Montgomery contributed the first song, "My Brother's Keeper," inspired by the victims of Hurricane Katrina. With each download of her tune, which is available free until Sept. 24, Choice Hotels will donate a $1 to Rebuilding Together, a nonprofit that constructs homes in the Gulf region.
