As much of the nation has been saddened and angered by the senseless killing of unarmed teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO, soulful songstress Elle Varner hopes to do her part by spreading the message of “One Love.”
The singer has released the uplifting new call-to-action song, produced by DJ Dahi, in wake of the shooting and continued rise in gun violence and unmerited killings.
“Imagine no one needing guns all at once, impossible maybe / But we’ve never tried it / The whole world in silence, respecting each other, our gods and our brothers killing with kindness,” she sings with her raspy tone.
“Whoever you are, wherever you are in the world, and whatever pain you may be suffering….this song is for you,” said Elle. “This song is for #MikeBrown and the people of #Ferguson. It is for #HadiyaPendleton and the people of #Chicago. It is for the lives being destroyed in #Gaza. It is for people all over the world who need help and healing. This song is a wakeup call! We are all in this together believe it or not…..we all cry the same tears and bleed the same blood. Life is an incredible gift that everyone deserves! Please help spread the message and post this song hashtagging anything happening in the world that matters to you. Thank you.”
Elle has currently been working on and prepping for the release of her sophomore album 4 Letter Word, which is due out this fall.
