Making a music video to support Flint
Now there's news of a music video to support the struggling city of Flint that has been several months in the making.
On Saturday, the Flint Journal reports that more than 50 community members were being filmed and chanting "We gone make it, the fight ain't yours alone!" in the downtown area.
The Flint Journal reports:
It was all a part of a scene being filmed as part of the Flint collaboration 25-plus musicians who’ve recently felt led to make an uplifting anthem for the city.
Two months in the making, this scene was among the final, yet most powerful, pieces to add to the original Flint-inspired song and music video.
“It was such a beautiful sight to see,” said Yusuf Bauswell, 38, of Flint.
Bauswell, along with Bernard Jackson -- another Flint musician -- spearheaded the project and sent out a calling for people wanting to support their cause.
The Journal reports that Yusuf Bauswell and Bernard Jackson started writing the song together several months ago. They invited other recording artists to help them out and together they created the song and are now working on making the accompanying music video.
June 20 is the scheduled release date for the video.
Here's a clip of the song along with the call for people to help with the music video:
