Newark in Tune: Brick City Anthem!

We are still seeking funds for the music video, but with your help the song was mixed and mastered by pro-engineer Mark Dollar! It is available via the link below:

Newark in Tune is the first major project of Collaborate Audio Lab, an organization that aims to engage our urban community through exciting programs that tap in to the incredible power of sound and music to bring people together. If you watched the video above, then you know how much work and love we've already put into this project! Never did I expect it to grow this big, but the voice of a city like Newark deserves to be heard, and we're not done yet!

Now we need help to:

1) Master the track with professional audio engineer Mark Dollar to be released online and made free to the public

2) Cover expenses for our free-to-the-public track release party and concert coming up at Gallery Aferro from 5-7pm on Saturday March 18th (located at 73 Market Street)

3) Put out an amazing Music Video with foundationDIGITAL FILMS

4)  Create a dynamic mural to use as a backdrop in the video and performance with local artist GETLOSTALOT

If you can donate any amount, no matter how small, it will be deeply felt by not only myself, but the dozens of local community members who have been a part of this adventure, and the young artists and entrepeneurs of this city who will be inspired by our song and video in years to come! Thank you so much, and make sure to come out to see us on March 18th!

Huge thanks to Sheikia "Purple" Norris, without her help we could never have gone this far! Also thanks to our partners Gallery Aferro, Yendor Productions, Newark School of the Arts, NJPAC, Science Park High School, The Institute of Music for Children, The Newark Arts Council, The Essex County Division of Cultural and Historic Affairs, and New Music USA.
