The World Needs You – My Get Out the Vote Song

Introducing “The World Needs Your Voice”

I probably don’t need to tell you how important the upcoming midterm elections will be.  I was inspired to write and record a new get-out-the-vote song, “The World Needs Your Voice”, which I’m excited to share with you here.  Let’s spread this message everywhere we can in the months leading up to our elections next fall, and let’s work with the NAACP and others who are trying to turn out the vote and register more voters.  This is democracy, let’s make it work!

We won’t be victims – Won’t be afraid
Got to heal the broken world we’ve made
Make a change –  make a choice  –  The world needs your voice.
Register your intention – Rock the boat
You can’t complain   – if you don’t vote
Express yourself – get everybody else – The world needs our voice.

Raise your voice  (Vote!)  – Now is the hour (Got to vote!)
One voice then many  (Vote!)  – Speak truth to power (Got to Vote!) –
Cry in anguish, – shout and rejoice  – The world needs your voice

The world needs your voice , The world needs your voice
Make a change –  make a choice  –  The world needs your voice.
The world needs your voice ,  The world needs your voice.
Cry in anguish, – shout and rejoice  – The world needs your voice

The forces of exclusion, Obfuscation, and confusion
The heads of power  – And those in the shadows
Will feel the rising tide,
They’re gonna know which way the wind blows

Raise the spirit, raise a groundswell
Raise consciousness, raise a little hell
Faith resounding – A joyful noise – The world needs this voice.

Don’t get down (Vote!)  – Don’t stop believing (Vote!)
Don’t get angry (Vote!)  – get even (Get even)
Let’s make some change – Bring alive your choice  –  The world needs your voice.

The world needs your voice ,  The world needs your voice
Make a change –  make a choice  –  The world needs your voice.
The world needs your voice ,  The world needs your voice
Cry in anguish, – shout and rejoice  – The world needs your voice
