Jon Connor, a local of Michigan, lately hit the lab with Keke Palmer and producer The Fr3shmen for a track addressing the Flint Water disaster. As you’ll be able to think about, Connor is taking this matter extra critical than most as the difficulty is destroying households in his hometown.
For me & the residents of my metropolis, the Flint “disaster” didn’t begin with poison water,” says Connor. “The lead in our water is one other impediment in an extended record of hurdles we as Flint natives have been pressured to attempt to overcome. We’re resilient by nature & have all the time maintained delight in our metropolis regardless of how troublesome issues get. However that is one thing we nor any AMERICAN metropolis ought to ever need to endure. For a second think about all the belongings you wouldn’t have the ability to do if the water in your metropolis was poisoned. Even worse take into consideration what you’d really feel if individuals have been truly dying due to it.
“I need to thank all the entertainers who’re serving to my metropolis by means of donations,” Connor continues, “nevertheless it ought to be understood that this can be a long run difficulty. It will take years to repair the water system & in some instances, and lead poisoning is irreversible. This isn’t a ‘for the second situation.’ Flint will want consciousness, prayers and assist to rebuild for years to return. Earlier than I used to be Jon Connor the artist I used to be Jon Freeman from Flint, Michigan. Flint, I really like you. Flint Lives Matter.”
