Actor/recording artist Trevor Jackson released a song today to express his anger and sadness with the recent shootings. The song, titled “Colours On The Ground,” comes just a few days after the shooting and killing of Terence Crutcher in Tulsa, O.K., Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte, N.C. and Terrence Sterling in Washington, D.C. Trevor wrote this song, along with his brother Iyn Jackson after Alton Sterling and Philando Castile were shot and killed earlier this year.
“I wrote this song after the Alton Sterling and Philando Castile shooting and with the recent unfortunate tragedies involving Terence Crutcher, Keith Lamont Scott & Terrence Sterling, I felt compelled to share the song in hopes that it sheds light on these dark times. Using the pain and frustrations that I know a lot of us deal with fueled me to create something that I pray helps others cope with the current state of our country. We can no longer turn a blind eye…change is necessary.”
Produced by Pay Attention and Killa, the single will be available for purchase on October 4th and all proceeds will go directly to the Black Lives Matter organization.
