[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”] Michael Brun, has partnered with Artists for Peace and Justice (APJ), a non-profit organization started by Paul Haggis and friends that supports programs in education, healthcare, and dignity through the arts in Haiti, to produce a brand new track featuring Haitian artists.
Haiti’s culture has always been underpinned by music, and Audio Institute, a project of APJ, provides Haitian youth the chance to build a career through music, providing free two year college programs in audio engineering and music production, as well as employment and professional services for students, and alumni.
Brun was inspired by the students of Audio Institute when he first visited as a guest lecturer, and subsequently returned to produce a song with them entitled ‘Wherever I Go‘, which is now his latest single
“While I was taking this picture in Times Square, a woman walked by me and laughed because she didn’t understand why a asian looking guy was holding up the Haitian Flag. I smiled, replied to her in kreyol and she froze in place. Her disbelief turned to understanding and she gave me a big smile back. Haitians come in all shapes and colors but no matter what we can all be united in the fact that we represent our heritage proudly. #WhereverIGo I have a part of home with me 🇭🇹🗽”
