Your Brother's Keeper (CD Single)

I was inspired by President Barack Obama’s “My Brother’s Keeper Initiative Program” to write this song. The purpose of his program was to put more focus on our youth by giving them more opportunities to succeed in life. I’ve had the opportunity to teach and work with young teenagers for six years, and I understand the need for more mentoring and giving constructive guidance. I’ve also noticed the rise in violence with young teens in the City of Chicago and our nation. This song was written to send a message that we must begin to pay more attention, inspire and support our youth. Also, our youth must begin to be the keeper and protector of each other.  “You’ve got to be Your Brother’s Keeper”.
