MUSIC LEAK: PROXY “CHANGE (FEAT. AYINDE RUSSELL)”

We have 2, possibly 3 generations growing up without examples of men and women leaders of color, outside of entertainment.  So we want to stop, recognize and celebrate the unsung heroes, literally.  When my 42-year-old cousin, husband, father, community leader, and business professional died unexpectedly in December of 2014, I was challenged to think about the impact of his life.  I processed why he was a great man and what we should celebrate.  I thought about many of the men I follow, respect and emulate and noticed a consistent theme in their lives: depth of impact vs. width.  Jesus, my father, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., my grandfather and cousin each were unsung heroes for their families and communities.  Their deep investments in those who are within reach matters to me.  I believe it’s essential that we begin to celebrate men and women like this, not the creative and popular.  If we can change what we value and who we celebrate, we can change our goals and change ourselves.  God did not make us to receive worship, but to give it.  This song relates to the new Group Vigilant Community Development  initiative: Neighborhood Superman.

Features Ayinde Russell and production by Decap and Chris Keys.
