Pop-alternative artist Carmen Justice, formerly of 1 Girl Nation, just dropped her second single “Red & Yellow Black & White” (buy single) featuring GabeReal from TobyMac’s Diverse City Band. To watch the video at CCMmagazine.com, please click the “play” button below.
Justice and GabeReal wrote the song along with David and Jonathan Thulin. David Thulin, who has produced music for all-stars including Andreas Moss, DJ Kirk and Beckah Shae, produced the song creating a powerful anthem of unity.
“There is so much happening in the world right now that could be solved in an instant if we would learn to just embrace each other with love,” explains Carmen. “We are living in a time that it has become acceptable to tear each other apart and box people into categories based on the color of their skin. As Christians, we are called to LOVE people regardless of race, religion, culture or nationality. Remember the old children’s song ‘Jesus Loves The Little Children’? The line from that nursery rhyme says, ‘red and yellow black and white, they are precious in His sight’ and that triggered the concept of this song. I truly feel like with the hate, discrimination, wars, fighting, judgment, and anxiety different people groups are facing each and every day, LOVE seems to be the missing piece.”
The music video was shot in the heart of Music City (Nashville) and was directed/edited by Matt Hadley of Wander Creative. It features choreography by Albanus Thierry and the rapping talents of Carmen’s good friend GabeReal (Diverse City Band).
“Red & Yellow Black & White” is the follow up single to “Flaming Arrows (buy single),” the debut single that launched Carmen’s solo career back in January. Carmen is currently working on her EP set to release later this year…
