In the past week, the U.S. has seen three tragic events that all resulted in death. But in light of these dark times, a local Maryland girl who goes by the name of “Ivy L’gue,” was inspired to write a song to lead people in a positive direction.
She calls the song “Be Heard,” a song that speaks about police brutality, unity and empowering others. The song was originally written following the death of Freddie Gray, and after the most recent deaths of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling, she believes the lyrics are still relevant today.
“At the end of the day, you have a voice and I have a voice,” she said. “We all have different perspectives, and honestly, we don’t have to agree. But “Be Heard” is just about allowing your voice to be heard.”
