Stand UP by Tyra V. McKinzie Featuring. Rayshun Lamarr Official Music Video

Events DC

Stand Up was written a day after receiving a call from my friend, music producer Blaise Tangelo, asking if I would write a song for the 2020 Biden/Harris campaign. I was beyond excited and honored. However, as I began writing the lyrics I thought, this message needs to be concise, thought provoking, and must galvanize American citizens to get involved. It has to be an anthem; A call to action. I called my friend Rayshun Lamarr (Semifinalist in the 14th season of The Voice) and asked if he would record the lead. I knew that he would knock it out of the park. He did indeed!

I decided to create a video that would further convey the urgency of this message. This song is my heart’s cry to American citizens to, “Stand up for love, for peace, stand up for human rights, and equality”. It’s our responsibility to use whatever platform we’re given to help create a world that is filled with compassion, kindness, empathy, and mutual respect for all.  We all have the right to feel and be safe regardless of our skin color, religious affiliation, or sexual orientation. We all have a right to pursue happiness, equal opportunities, and thrive in what is supposed to be the land of the free. My prayer is that the lyrics of Stand Up will convince the listener to vote for change. I feel that change consist of voting for Biden/Harris ticket in next month’s election!
