Because music is a gateway to the things that matter to you. What matters to us is what motivates us to vote. Hill-Freeman Music Director Ezechial Thurman explains it using the Philly International model. We're moved by the balance: Love songs, of course, but also message music: talking about justice, community, respect.
Please read and share, starting with this dope version of "Wake Up, Everybody," by Hill-Freeman Records. Sing along. Find the pink Register to Vote button, top right. You can probably do it before the credits.
