Artists all over the world are using their voices to speak up about the COVID-19 pandemic and Black Lives Matter uprisings. RnB/pop singer B. Howard is jumping in with his uplifting track “We Are Champions” featuring Taiwanese-American artist Van Ness Wu.
Garnering millions of views on social video platform Tik Tok, the song is a nod to those on the front lines of these issues and highlights the resilience of humanity. The accompanying visual showcases a pumped up B. Howard and Van Ness Wu as well as clips of peaceful protestors and medical professionals risking their lives for these important causes.
“COVID-19 is a global pandemic that we are all experiencing. ‘We Are Champions’ honors the front liners who are risking their lives to save lives in service of others,” B. Howard said.
The artist is from the U.S. and also weighed in on the recent cases of police brutality that have sounded an alarm nationwide.
“As we mourn the recent murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and countless others who have been met with hostility and racism, we appeal to all with the message that we are in this together. We can overcome if we let our light penetrate through the darkness of racial discrimination and profiling. Art has the power to unite and connect in times of crisis and we hope that the proceeds we raise from ‘We Are Champions’ helps to support those organizations who are turning fear, anxiety, and panic into hope and empowerment.”
Produced by B. Howard and Marcos “Kosine” Palacios of Da Internz, the track is also a benefit, raising money that will be donated to UNICEF.
