We invite you to enjoy this 2020 Song Around The World rendition of “Get Up Stand Up” that premiered during our recent Peace Through Music global event. For this version, we added Skip and Cedella Marley, Malian blues rock band Songhoy Blues, harmonica virtuoso Lee Oskar and an excerpt of Martin Luther King Jr.’s famed “I Have a Dream” speech—bringing together musicians from all corners of the earth, united and standing up for social justice.
2020 was a challenging year for many of us but we must continue to push forward to overcome the injustices of this world and music is the tool to help us. Here’s to a better and brighter 2021. Happy New Year!
