I Marched and sang my song “Hated” on Westwood for International Womens day March 7th!!
Well, First off I have to say that it was great to see the many faces that came out to the March 7th. It seemed that there were many who were unaware that the was a March to be had but when they realized who we were and what we were marching for, the tone changed in a way that brought light and gratitude for what we were doing. Some even joined in on the March.
I was first introduce to the march from the fundraising concert performed by Tom Morello aka The Nightwatchman for IWD. The concert was amazing and the music and poetry from the many talented Iranian women was breathtaking. I quickly signed myself up to March for a good cause. And soon by my surprised I was asked to perform for the March 7th event. I was very happy to showcase my talents and time to such a day.
I really enjoyed performing my song “Hated” to the group I felt that this was the perfect song to introduce myself to the group. I even handed out lyrics and a free download to the song on my record label page here http://myspace.com/100girlspillrecords.
I started off my song by saying “That if one is not free then none of us our free”. I truly believe that. Freedom is the most valuable gift we could ever have in life. And for those of us that have it we must defend it for those that don’t!
KPFK was there doing coverage on the day. If you search the archives you might be able to find something on it.
I just wanted to say that I was glad happy to use my talents and time for such a profound cause and I can’t wait for the next one!
