I feel a certain way about music.
It is just not about the groove. I have to connect to the sound and I definitely connected to Liz Loughrey.
The Toronto based singer has over 2 million views on her Youtube channel. Impressive right?
Written and produced in Miami by Liz Loughrey, Adrian X (The Weeknd, Drake, Kylie Minogue) and Supa Dups (Drake, Party Next Door, Mary J Blige) Rise Up! is a catchy and refreshing song which stands for positive change. It is a call to action that says it’s time to stop living a life of complacency or in the words of the song, it’s time for us to ‘take less and give a little more’. Loughrey adds ‘Rise Up! is more than a song, it’s a movement. The #RiseUpMovement is all about telling the stories of people who are positively impacting the world and encouraging people of all ages and walks of life to Rise Up in their communities. It is spreading the message that we can do amazing things when we work together.. when we make LOVE our theme, and PEACE our goal’.
With that objective in mind, Liz Loughrey has created the Rise Up Workshops. She is currently visiting schools to encourage youth to think outside the box and start making their own positive impact on their community. The stories collected throughout her workshops will be shared on her website. Anyone can take part in the movement by submitting their own story on Social Media using the #RiseUpMovement hashtag.
Rise Up! is the debut single taken from her upcoming EP which is set to be released sometime next year.
I think this is such a great cause.
