You Don't Know How It Feels - #BlackLivesMatter

I recorded this song out of a need to address the problems of racism and disparity in this country and worldwide. 
For me, this was the ultimate "something I could do" to directly use my talents for the cause.
If you know and have followed me and my music through the years you know yes, I love to have a good time. But it's more imperative for me to be about something and have a purpose and meaning in everything I do.

is the meaning.

This song is a take on a Tom Petty song called 'You Don't Know How It Feels'
Some of the lyrics have been changed to coincide with the movement
& The vibe well... I had to make it mine (wink wink ;) 

I'm proud to say his daughter has heard the song and seen the video
& is also in support of our efforts.

I ask only of you whatever you can afford.
I have well over 5000 followers throughout my social media links.
If each of you will donate even just $1 or $2 we can easily meet this goal.
Proceeds from your donations will go to the Black Lives Matter Movement.
In what way you might ask..?
There is a BLM Chapter here in my area of New Jersey.
There are also homeless shelters and soup kitchens right here in this area that could also benefit from any and all donations.

I've offered my services to Elijah's Promise and other local services in the past and will continue to do as much as I can.
I only ask you give whatever God puts on your heart.

I sincerely hope you enjoy my rendition of the song along with the director's vision and that it moves you enough to want to contribute.
No donation is too small or too big.

                     Wishing Many Blessings To You All & Please Stay Safe
