"I'd look up at the moon and think that if I could just scream loud enough for her to hear me, maybe we could find her," Rap said Monday. Now, six years after Gina Bos' disappearance, singer-songwriter Rap has launched the Squeaky Wheel Tour to raise awareness of missing people.
“Clementine is most known for their musical and lyrical hooks and their unique vocal sound reminiscent of the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac and Crosby Stills Nash and Young. Clementine has shared the stage with Hal Ketchum, Louden Wainwright, Nickel Creek and more.”

“As the days turned into months, Rap decided on using entertainment to get attention for the missing...”
“The song wrote itself, she said, after a supermarket clerk recently remarked to her, "Aren't you glad the rain is finally gone?''”
