WNYC Premieres JEN CHAPIN’s New Video “Gospel” to Commemorate the Birthday of DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.
New York, NY — Singer-songwriter and food justice activist Jen Chapin honors Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and nonviolent social justice movements past and present, with a new video “Gospel,” beautifully created by NYC artists K8 Howley and Jak Ritger from Jen’s highly-praised recent release ‘Reckoning’, produced by five-time GRAMMY© Award winner Kevin Killen.
The video is exclusively premiered with an introduction by radio host John Schaefer at WNYC. Watch and read about video here.
“And like her father, the songwriter and activist Harry Chapin, Jen has found a way to use simple language to convey something of depth and complexity. So as the song ends, with a chorus gently repeating “It’s gonna take a long time, but we’re not going away,” it’s hard not to think of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s extraordinary statement of determination and hope: “The moral arc of the universe is long. But it bends towards justice.” John Schaefer, WNYC’s Soundcheck and New Sounds Radio Host
