TREVOR JACKSON DEBUTS “COLOURS ON THE GROUND”

In light of countless murders of black people by police officers , Trevor Jackson took a stand with a new release “Colours On The Ground.”

“Colours” is a touching song that hits home for many in the African American community and others worldwide.

The song contains a relatable and heartfelt message that people of color can empathize with due to tragic recent events in the country.

On the first verse he sings:

She keeps on screaming he was just 19 / The  man in blue said / I told him to stay down

that doesn’t make it right / shame on you, shame on you / bet If I ask the ones we lost

what they did so wrong / what they say is / “I had my hands up….my hoodie on”

“I’m crying, still I’m dying.. / “I had my hands up….my hoodie on”

No gun was drawn / still they find a way to make us colors on the ground…”

On Trevor’s soundcloud he left a note:

“I wrote this song after the Alton Sterling and Philando Castile shooting and with the unfortunate tragedies this week involving Terence Crutcher and Keith Lamont Scott, I felt compelled to share the song in hopes that it sheds light on these dark times. Using the pain and frustrations that I know a lot of us deal with fueled me to create something that I pray helps others cope with the current state of our country. We can no longer turn a blind eye…change is necessary.”

He added, “Using the pain and frustrations that I know a lot of us deal with fueled me to create something that I pray helps others cope with the current state of our country. We can no longer turn a blind eye…change is necessary.”

“Colours On The Ground” will be available for purchase on October 4th and all proceeds will go directly to the Black Lives Matter organization.
