NY Soul All-Stars Encourage Us To ‘Be A Humanitarian’
View article here: NY Soul All-Stars Encourage Us To ‘Be A Humanitarian’
It’s been months since a devastating earthquake struck Haiti in January, leaving much of the capital city of Port-au-Prince in ruins. Although the 24/7 news coverage of the catastrophe has all but stopped to a trickle, the island nation is still in dire need of help recovering and rebuilding. Deeply affected by what happened in his homeland, Haitian singer/songwriter Ricky Derose teamed up with his friend Steve Wallace to create a “We Are the World”-like project bringing together a who’s who of the New York City independent and underground soul music scene, including SoulBounce faves Eric Roberson, Angela Johnson, Chester Gregory and Darien. The result is the heartfelt composition “Be A Humanitarian,” which quite honestly puts that “We Are the World 25” remake to shame. The aforementioned artists were joined by over a dozen featured vocalists and a choir of more than 25 others. The music video below captures the recording of the song, which has been released through a partnership with Purpose Records, Edclectic Entertainment and Neo Renaissance Music and can be purchased right now on iTunes. In addition to providing aid to Haiti, money will also be dispersed to other disaster zones, for HIV/AIDS research and to underprivileged children. The following organizations will receive 100% of the proceeds from this song: Baptist Haitian Mission; Habitat For Humanity Dekalb County, GA; Watchful Eye; Brooklyn Teen Challenge and Dr. Bob Lee’s Make The Grade Foundation. Kudos to everyone involved in this brilliant project.
