Toronto-based Soul/Pop artist Liz Loughrey drops an inspiring visual for her new single "Rise Up!". With over 2 million views on her YouTube channel, Loughrey has managed to create a devoted & growing fanbase by winning their hearts with her soulful sound blended with uplifting lyrics. Greatly influenced by Etta James & Sade, Loughrey is a genuinely old soul who creates a brand of Pop that speaks to the past & signals a bright future.
Written & produced in Miami by Liz Loughrey, Adrian X (The Weeknd, Drake, Kylie Minogue), & Supa Dups (Drake, Party Next Door, Mary J Blige), "Rise Up!" is a catchy & refreshing song which stands for positive change. It is a call to action that says it's time to stop living a life of complacency or in the words of the song, it's time for us to "take less & give a little more".
"'Rise Up!' is more than a song, it's a movement. The #RiseUpMovement is all about telling the stories of people who are positively impacting the world and encouraging people of all ages and walks of life to Rise Up in their communities. We turn on the news and are constantly bombarded with negativity and so it's easy to feel powerless, but the #RiseUpMovement is spreading the message that we can do amazing things when we work together.. when we make LOVE our theme, and PEACE our goal".
With that objective in mind, Liz Loughrey has created the Rise Up Workshops. She is currently visiting schools across the country to encourage youth to think outside the box and start making their own positive impact on their community. The stories collected throughout her workshops will be shared on her website. Anyone can take part in the movement by submitting their own story on social media using the #RiseUpMovement hashtag.
