With negativity and tragedy becoming an everyday occurrence it’s easy to become numb to it and chalk it up to a cruel world. Colorado MC, singer and producer, Paul Junior decided to actually do something about it. He put together a heavy-hitting roster of Colorado artists to create a track that aims to not only touch the hearts of those affected by the recent tragedies, but also assist them financially.
The track, “Faith In Change” (below) costs a measly $1 to download, but 100% of the proceeds will be donated to healingnewtown.org, an organization that aims to heal the community of Newton through the power of art. Appropriate, right?
We took a moment to find out some of the details of how this project came together from Paul Junior.
HipHopRollCall.com: I assume the Sandy Hook shooting hit home with you to inspire putting together a project like this. How did the idea come about?
Paul Junior: Sandy Hook just hit me hard because of the children I am involved with every day of my life. The Aurora theater shootings did as well. I mean when kids are being killed, it just hurts my heart in a certain way. I have many children in my family whom I love and it’s not right to be afraid to send them to school or take them to see a movie. I am not a parent yet, but majority of the artists on this song are, and we want to let people know we are with them and together, we can be strong. Colorado has been the home to some of the most violent shootings in the history of this country, which is why I felt it was our time to sound off and really pay our respects and tributes to the victims involved. If anyone knows how much it hurts, it’s Colorado.
