BALTIMORE, MD – The Baltimore #Song4Unity project has announced a live debut of their unity song at the 9th Annual Boundary Block Party on Saturday, April 16, at 12 pm.
The Block Party, hosted by the No Boundaries Coalition, Jubilee Arts and Beats, Rhymes & Relief, will be located at the corner of Pennsylvania Avenue and Presstman Street. This year’s block party will include free shuttles to early voting sites to vote in the April Primary election.
#Song4Unity is a project designed to bring unity to our Baltimore communities through music. Recognizing that musicians are the gatekeepers for our universal language of music, Sahffi Lynne gathered fifteen Baltimore songwriters from multiple genres (including Brooks Long, Black Root, Sahffi, Sonia of Disappear Fear, QueenEarth, Andrew Walen, and more) in the fall of 2015 to write a song for unity at The Living Well.
A studio version is to be released in April, 2016. Vocal tracks are being recorded at 4:30 Entertainment Studios on Monday and Tuesday evenings, April 4th and 5th.
Proceeds of the sale of the song online will benefit #SaveaDopeBoy, a grassroots organization founded by the late Derrick “OOH” Jones of BrownFish and Tiffany Welch, current director.
#Song4Unity has also expanded it’s reach, creating a “#Song4Unity Junior” with the 6th graders at Catonsville Middle. Musicians from Wilmington, DE, and New York City have also expressed interest in writing their own #Song4Unity.
All participants of this project have donated their time, talents, and studios. With this project we hope music will enable our collective minds and hearts to open to the larger awareness of unity.
