KC Jockey Releases Video To Accompany Single "Girl, You're Free" To Give Hope To Those Suffering From Domestic Violence
Online PR News – 14-May-2012 – New York, NY – Karl-Marx Waite of Sweet Sadie's Productions announced the release of a video to accompany Pop/R&B/Reggae artist KC Jockey's single, "Girl, You're Free," the goal of which is to put a face on domestic violence and encourage those being abused to put an end to it.
Michele Wilson-Morris of The Entertainment Bank commented, "The video "Girl, You're Free" (shown above) is significant and sobering, detailing the struggle of a woman who is being abused. Knowing that there are people who really endure such trauma makes it a difficult, but necessary watch. It was tastefully and professionally done, and KC Jockey really accomplished his goal of helping to bring this cause to the forefront, as it's something that people rarely talk about, but should.
The single "Girl, You're Free," released August 27, 2011, took the top spot on WXAC 91.3's Urban - Reggae Charts for the week ending September 25, 2011 and has been quite popular with domestic violence advocacy groups. KC Jockey attributes the success of the track to his unique style of combining pop, R&B, and reggae with a topic that will have meaning and relevance for a lifetime. "The music I make is timeless and significant. It's deep, and when you have a good sound and a good message, people are drawn to it."
He continued, "I wrote this song because there are so many people who have experienced or are experiencing domestic violence and/or abuse to give them hope. What many don't realize is that abuse isn't necessarily just physical - it's mental and emotional as well. It's a way of taking away someone's power and invalidating their self-worth. Almost everyone knows someone who has been in an abusive relationship whether they're aware of it or not because many people are so ashamed that they hide it from others. But for those who don't, it touches everyone around them and it's devastating. My personal experience with it through friends and family compelled me to express through music the fact that these situations don't have to be permanent, and I hope this song gives people the courage they need to leave these unhealthy relationships because there's a better life out there if they are willing to take that first step and leave."
KC Jockey warns us that "We must all watch our thoughts before they become words, watch our words before they become actions, watch our actions, or they become habits, and watch our habits, for they become our destiny. Being abusive to another human being is a choice that one makes. But you can also make the choice not to abuse as well."
KC Jockey easily takes an unpleasant topic and delivers a song that is not only entertaining, danceable, and likeable, but deep and thought provoking. This is a song that both men and women can relate to, and should be appreciated en masse. Some will want to play it often as a source of strength and comfort. "Girl, You're Free" scores a perfect 10 on every level, and music lovers of all genres will want to add this track to their collection.
In addition to being a talented singer/songwriter, KC Jockey is also an actor, making appearances in American Gangster (Denzel Washington) and I Am Legend (Will Smith). A native of Jamaica, he currently resides in New York City.
