Brandee Younger "He Has A Name (Awareness)

Harpist Brandee Younger released this beautiful & soulful jazz composition, reminiscent of the likes of Alice Coltrane, in tribute Trayvon Martin & other murder victims.   

"This piece was composed in memory of the late Trayvon Martin.  The tragic case that has affected so many of us across the world has been a wakeup call that we need to address racial injustice today.  Entitled "He Has a Name" and subtitled "Awareness," the piece urges us to open our eyes to reality instead of holding to irrational beliefs due to preconceived notions. 100% of the proceeds from this recording will be donated to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. to help the organization continue its fine work in striving for racial justice."
