One only has to turn on the news, scroll through their Facebook timelines, or quickly glance at any social media outlet to see the mess the world is in today. Hate, death, war . . . all common headlines in this day and age. I made this song and music video last year at the height of the riots in the U.S. to encourage positivity in the struggle. A year has passed and although the riots have subsided, it has been replaced by mass shootings and more tragic violence. The message to remain positive and keep your head up is even more relevant now and I’d like to take the time to remind everyone.
Today, more than ever, we need UNITY. Structural violence is rampant, injustice breeds riots, and there is unrest in the streets. Love has been replaced with pain, suffering and hurt. It’s time for us to rise from the ashes of this turmoil and rebuild. Let’s look beyond class, race and culture and honor the humanity that unites us all. Understanding. Peace. Unity. This is dedicated to all victims of violence.
“They’ll never keep us down, cuz we’re SKY HIGH!”
