ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Nhojj's "Things Will Get Better" Encourages Gay Youth

Nhojj continues to establish himself as an artist who delivers positive, life affirming messages. In his latest release, "Things Will Get Better" he embraces gay youth experiencing bullying and abuse and shares his own story.

With a simple song recorded on his Apple computer, award-winning gay artist Nhojj joins the ranks of President Barak Obama, Laura Bush and thousands of others in offering a message of hope to gay youth experiencing bullying and abuse. The name of the song is "Things Will Get Better."

Son of a church minister, Nhojj grew up in Georgetown, Guyana. His religious upbringing was strict. He experienced first hand the feelings of isolation and confusion that result from being teased by classmates for being gay. But things got better after graduating from high school and moving to New York City, where he eventually pursued a career in music.

Statistics for gay youth are dismal. According to "It Gets Better Project" nine out of ten LGBT youths have experienced harassment in school, and more than one-third have attempted suicide, four times more than their heterosexual counterparts.

Nhojj infuses his own story with lyrics from "Amazing Grace" for this uniquely personal offering--"Things Will Get Better." "It is important for churches and religious institutions to help youth live," Nhojj says. "God is on the side of love—love of all people. This is the basis of all great religious teachings."

LYRICS
Is this what they say?
Is this what they do?
That makes you want to fade away

Are these the words that they use?
Do they bully and abuse?
Just because you're gay

Well I've been there before and I know how you feel
We all walk through this door
And somehow learn to live
And on the other side
You can stand with pride

Things will get better
Things will get brighter
I promise it will

Amazing Grace
How sweet the sound
Love saves a child like me
I once was lost
But now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see

Things will get better
Life will shine brighter

Some will be nicer
Some will be kinder

Things will get better
Love will bring laughter

Things will get better
Love will bring laughter
