Missed this the first time, thanks for reposting! laugh

Sad to see the picture of Devonte Hart at 1:53 and 4:09 given how his life ended.

As usual, excellent work.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Excellent!

It’s an important song, I think you should post it every year on this day.

Great job! It's so difficult to pay proper tribute in a song ... but you hit the nail on the head! Excellent song with the perfect message. A very inspirational listen. Your music is always among the very best on these forums ... and would just about anywhere else. Great job on the video!!!

Excellent! best to you ...

Alan

Greg,

This is spectacular. I love the song, the presentation and the production. This has such a rich, warm and inviting overall sound.

This is truly a wonderful message. It's one of those that when it's said over and over, more and more people hear it.

I thoroughly enjoyed hearing this again.

Regards,
Noel

Hello Greg,

I hadn't heard that song before - man, am I glad you re-posted it.

The message of 'Make racism wrong again' is definitely one of the most important ones (if not THE mpst important one). Your song really touched me deep in my heart and watching the video made me think of all those terrible brothers and sisters racism has: xenophobia, homophobia, misogyny ...

I'm old like a stone, but I will never understand what drives people to hate and disrespect others just because of color, race, sex, creed or whatever.

Yes, Greg, keep on posting that song on a regular basis.

Thank you so much,

Stefan

PS: Oh yes - I do not only like the message - the musical side of it (especially the vocals) are simply excellent, too !

RealBand® for Windows® is your all-in-one audio workstation and accompaniment program, and if you've purchased a copy of Band-in-a-Box® for Windows in the last decade, it's been included in your purchase!

We released RealBand in July 2008, along with Band-in-a-Box® 2008.5.

For example, type in chords to your song, generate a RealDrums track, record in your guitar and vocal parts. Then put on your 'arranger' hat and have some fun automatically adding RealTracks - maybe a guitar solo, or pedal steel background for the bridge."

We hope everyone enjoys using RealBand, which combines some great features from our PowerTracks Pro Audio program with the powerful accompaniment features from Band-in-a-Box®!
