Trevor Jackson lends his voice to the cause, releasing the brand new song “Colours On The Ground,” in regards to all the violent police brutality and killings that have continued to plaque our communities on a disgustingly consistent basis.
The young singer/actor released the song on Thursday (Sept. 22), to express his anger and sadness over the most recent shooting deaths of Terence Crutcher in Tulsa, O.K., Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte, N.C. and Terrence Sterling in Washington, D.C. Trevor initially wrote the song, along with his brother Iyn Jackson, after Alton Sterling and Philando Castile were shot and killed this past summer.
“I wrote this song after the Alton Sterling and Philando Castile shooting and with the recent unfortunate tragedies involving Terence Crutcher, Keith Lamont Scott & Terrence Sterling, I felt compelled to share the song in hopes that it sheds light on these dark times,” explains Jackson. “Using the pain and frustrations that I know a lot of us deal with fueled me to create something that I pray helps others cope with the current state of our country. We can no longer turn a blind eye…change is necessary.”
The single will be available for purchase on October 4 and all proceeds will go directly to the Black Lives Matter organization. Take a listen below.
