India.arie Wants More Music And Politics
Soul singer INDIA.ARIE wants musicians to become more socially conscious.
The BROWN SKIN singer thinks that musicians naturally become more politically active and outspoken at a time of worldwide change.
She says, "I think that kind of music is always prevalent when there's a great political upheaval. And now there's a great political upheaval happening, people have to open their eyes. Sometimes I think that's why things like that happen to change the consciousness of humanity.
"Like we're not paying attention. How did GEORGE W BUSH win? Why wasn't there a big protest when he won? Everybody knew the numbers were wrong, everybody knew they were lying, but there wasn't a million people protesting in the park then."
