Millions of people will get meals this holiday season, thanks to Bob Dylan. The legendary singer-songwriter has pledged his royalties from the sale of his forthcoming album, Christmas In The Heart, (due. Oct.13) to various charities.

All of  his U.S. royalties will be donated to Feeding America (, ensuring that more than four million meals will be provided to more than 1.4 million people in need.
