What inspired this song?
Due to the recent killings and increased acts of violence in the city of my residence . . . fresh off the death of a well known Pastor who was a strong advocate for the youth and a helper of those who wanted to change their circumstances and turn their lives around . . .
Michael Baisden's recent visit to the city was the final trigger needed for me. I felt compelled to write this song in hopes of encouraging and uplifting the youth - but also to encourage other adults to take a more active stance and role with our youth . . . to that end . . I am donating 50% of the proceeds of this song and all my future recordings to the youth . . .specifically to the Richmond Continentals (a non-profit,charitable organization that have been helping children in Central Va for over 30 years . . ]
