John Legend – It’s Time To Preach
When it comes to social justice for all, around the world it is a commonality for millions of people who are praying for change.
John Legend has released a brand new single called “Preach”, which advocates for taking action to reform the social justice system.
“Sometimes we can get so frustrated by the news and what’s going on and there’s this battle going on in ourselves. Do we become apathetic? Do we become engaged? Do we just talk about it, or do we do something?” -John Legend
“Preach” is one of the first of its kind to leverage YouTube’s new built-in fundraising platform for non-profits. John Legend is calling on fans moved by the video to donate to his campaign, FREEAMERICA, which “aims to amplify the conversation about mass incarceration at the local, state, and national levels.”
With the powerful dream state video, the new single reflects on racial bias among police officers, school shootings, and the state of America’s southern border. Directed by Dominique DeLeon, the video concludes with a striking scene that calls for better relations between law enforcement and the communities they serve.
