Mariah Carey is encouraging you to ‘save the day’…
The 50-year-old half-Venezuelan American Grammy-winning songbird has released a lyric video for “Save The Day” in support of the non-profit Black media organization PushBlack, inspiring the Lambily to get out there and vote in the November 3 election.
“Our country is at a critical moment in history. In recording ‘Save The Day,’ I felt compelled to do what I could and use my platform to encourage us all to take action,” Carey wrote in a message to fans.
The elegant animated clip mixes sketched images of Carey with hand-drawn tributes to Breonna Taylor, Frederick Douglass, Sojourner Truth, Raquel Willis, first responders, youth activists and the late civil rights activist Rep. John Lewis.
Carey said she chose to spotlight PushBlack’s efforts to “educate and inspire Black people to build personal power and create lasting economic and political change for our communities.”
The singer ended her post by urging her fans to get out, get involved and get to the polls.
“Whether you’re fighting for your community at the polls or protesting on the frontlines, I hope this video will serve as an inspiring message for you to keep doing what’s in your power to save the day, every day,” she said, adding a #GetOutToVote tag.
