"I'll keep holding on till the whole world knows I matter. I feel myself getting stronger. My life is a gift I won't give away!" -Selina Albright
These words serve as the foundation for the new CD Single "Holding On," that will be released on October 16, 2020 by R&B Vocalist Selina Albright. Her Press Release says the lyrics "express the discouragement and fatigue felt by Black people all over the world working against the oppression of systemic racism..
The year 2020 is not the first time Black people have tried to convince non-Black people that our lives matter, and we will keep coming back to the outcry of this message until we are recognized, treated, respected, and valued not only as whole humans, but also rightfully as contributors of rich culture, excellence, creativity, innovation, style, and intellect."
WHAT MIGHT YOU FEEL AS A LISTENER?
You may be struck by the simplicity of the words of "Holding On," but also by the emotional response they evoke. In essence, they remind us of the struggles black people have endured for over 400 years; the disappointments felt, when the world keeps screaming, "You don't matter!" Yet . . . that still, small voice inside says, "You do matter . . . believe it . . . because it is the belief that keeps you moving, it's the patience . . . you rely on, the inner strength . . . you draw on, and the faith you cling to. . . that's gonna' get you there. Keep "holding on," you can make it!"
