Liz Loughrey’s “Rise Up” Video

Liz Loughrey’s new video is powerful: a collage of often violent acts plays across the screen as she sings about rising and learning to live together as a species.

We’ve all heard music like this before — and it’s hardly surprising to hear it again — but Liz’s video is doing such a good job of embodying the genre that it’s hard to ignore.

More importantly, Liz has created workshops in schools based around the song. The workshops encourage kids to start making positive impacts on their community. It’s a cool way to evoke change, and the definition of an artist putting her money where her mouth is.
