During such trying times artists have a responsibility to try and unite people of all nations, religions, and cultures through their work and platform. From Michelangelo, lying on his back in the sistine chapel to Jimmy Hendrix playing the national anthem at Woodstock, the artist has historically proven to be a consistent catalyst of change and peace...

It’s our responsibility today as artists to take similar risks, to challenge the status quo, and to glue the world back together. In the constant war waged to destroy and control our humanity, music and expression will forever be our greatest defense. We cannot let terror, oppression or violence contain the spread of music and art. We cannot let fear quiet the poet. 

As an artist, accept your responsibility. Your responsibility to unify, love, and inspire. To be loud, resilient, and truthful. To express your individuality and inspire others to do the same. Your words, emotions, and ideas are the most powerful weapon in the fight for our humanity. 

This song is dedicated to victims of terror and oppression not only in Paris and Brussels, but around the world. 

May your spirit live on forever in the words of your favorite song...
