Anthony Hamilton is using his soulful voice to encourage people to get involved with the 2018 midterm elections. The Grammy-winning singer has released a new song and video called “Love Conquers All,” which brings light to some issues that have an impact on black and brown communities.
“’Love Conquers All’ tackles tough, uncomfortable subjects like gun control, criminal justice reform, and prioritizing education,” Hamilton told Essence. “An artist has two choices. Stay quiet, or use your voice.”
He continued, “Too many Black and Brown people are in prison because prison is big business. And when they get out, there’s nothing to look forward to but feeling hopeless and helpless. It’s like society looks over them and jobs are hard to come by, leaving many families to suffer. We need to vote for candidates who are against for-profit prisons. They exploit these people for corporate gain and financial power.”
