Rooted in social justice issues, the video offers an intimate look at the Portland, Oregon demonstrations.
Portland, OR -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/10/2020 --In the wake of Civil Rights icon John Lewis's July 17 death, musician Randy Heddon wants the public to know there's still a great deal of work to be done.
Licensed to YouTube by CD Baby (on behalf of the artist), "Walking This Road" sheds light on social justice topics as Heddon takes viewers with him to the streets of Portland. The video features powerful black-and-white portraits showcasing the movement's longevity.
With emphatic piano chords and moving lyrics like In a world of shadow and light / In this place where we say our goodbyes / Now I'm walking this road / It never ends, "Walking This Road" is meant to spark awareness and change.
And so Heddon invites listeners to walk this road with him. Through his music, he urges the public to help overcome police brutality, celebrate Black lives, and refrain from turning a blind eye to racial injustice. One day, he sings, a new world will begin.
A portion of the proceeds from "Walking This Road" will be donated to social justice organizations like the NAACP, the ACLU, the Black Lives Matter Global Network, and the Bail Project.
