Recording artist releases heartfelt tribute music video to the victims of sandy hook elementary
Moved by the Super Bowl performance by the Sandy Hook Choir, recording artist Hunit Stackz (pronounced like 'hundred stacks') took to social media today to release a visual for a tribute song he recorded dedicated to the victims and victims families of the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre. Along with video link, the rapper stated:
"Being a father of 4 young children, this occurrence has moved my soul in a major way. I felt a pain of loss brewing deep inside as I watched the story unfold on local media. I imagined if this had occurred at my children's school and I was the one who loss my little child that day, and tears began to roll. In my personal life outside of my music career, I've worked in the public school system and volunteered many years, so I've grown a strong bond with many youth in my community even till this day. Too see something like this happen to innocent children, broke my spirit in half. I needed a way to reach out, I needed a vent, I needed to make some attempt to show a parent in CT that I care and I understand the devastation they are dealing with, but by me living all the way in Baltimore, my music was my best bet at reaching them. When I saw those children, those little angels singing at the Super Bowl, I felt like I should take the song to the next level and put a visual to it. My friends at Architects Studios aided me and getting my message across visually. I hope my prayers in my lyrics touch the souls that need to be touched and may God bless the dead."
