Independent R&B Rock n Soul artist Niva the Soul Diva has released her first new track and music video for 2013.
The track is an inspirational and motivational song called ‘Stop the Violence’, an attempt to bring awareness to rampant gun violence in urban communities in cities where youth have a culture of guns and violence. The song features Spoken word HipHop poet Kamal Supreme and guitarist Johnny Guitar Watson jr who adds rock flavor to many of niva’s tracks. According to Niva she originally wrote the song when she was in her hometown of Houston Texas before she came to new york city to pursue her dream of being a recording artist and performer. Niva stated, “I’m so sick and tired of turning on the news and seeing another innocent child get killed by stray bullets”.
The video for the song was produced by Brother Jonathan and took three months to produce, all of the footage is actual footage taken on the streets of brooklyn new york including the ingersoll and walt whitman public housing projects. The song is available as a free download on soundcloud, audiomack and reverbnation with a HQ Audiophile download available on newblackmusic.net.
