ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
There are 27 million enslaved people in the world today, more than at any other time in history. In an ongoing effort to combat and raise awareness of worldwide Human Trafficking and enslavement, the RIOT Band of La Plata, MD, is launching a music video on YouTube November 9 featuring an original song composed and recorded by members of the group. The lyrics of the piece, entitled “A Song I Heard,” encourage involvement, action and awareness of the issue. The song’s lyrics and music were composed in June 2012 by RIOT members Josh Hilson, Danielle Rovnak and Alexa Bungato, inspired by experiences preparing for and leading up to RIOT’s self-declared Human Trafficking Awareness Month. “I started playing random notes, and all of a sudden God gave me the words – that’s how it always happens,” Rovnak said.
The music video features members of the group trying to save a friend from being kidnapped, and illustrates the power of children and teenagers to make a difference for the issue. To underscore this point, RIOT Youth Group members over the past year have raised more than $12,000.00 for World Hope International and Poetice, International. “I want [the song] to be something churches and other groups can use and adapt as their own to spread the word,” Hilson noted. RIOT members were inspired to adopt Human Trafficking as their cause after “Never the Same” camp in the summer of 2011. Camp leaders challenged them to adopt a cause they were passionate about. After camp, RIOT leader and New Life Church Youth Pastor Bryan Sells proposed adopting Human Trafficking as their cause. The group developed a theme: “We CAN Help,” and each week at Youth Group meetings filled a decorated trash can with monetary donations from themselves, their families and community members. The $12,000.00 they have raised so far has come largely from donations thrown into the can. “It has been awesome seeing everyone be on fire for this one thing and raising so much money for the cause,” Bungato said.
