What better way to make a positive point to a negative situation then through music and laughter.
With the highlighters today of racial profiling, police brutality plus now, thanks to the Don, foreign policy, some may not get the blunt point of whats going on unless you put a melody to it, as well as a humoric point of view on it. (Sidebar: our amazing President Obama proved that point this past weekend: video below)
And that’s what the still beautiful Lisa Velez (Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam), has team up with Comedy High Productions to do.
But the question is, do you feel like Mike? “I always feel like somebody’s watching me…Who’s Watching Me!!”?
Well after telling her story on UNSUNG, Lisa, has another story to help tell…
The premiere of “INS is Watching Him” is today, May 5th, and their goal is to stop the war against racial disparities through educational laughter and old school beats.
“INS is Watching Him”: written and performed by comedian – Jesenia, this parody brings focus to the serious lack of humanity demonstrated to documented & undocumented immigrants in America. Wanting to give a voice to those who can’t or won’t, Jesenia decided to talk about it the only way she knows how – through the truth in COMEDY! Joined by the amazing freestyle diva Lisa Velez (Lisa Lisa and The Cult Jam), Jesenia and Lisa both deliver this powerful message of humanity!
Head to toe you will be lost in emotion, because, I was all cried out, from laughter after I watched it.
But, I just provided the platform for you, my co-critic’s, so hit me up and let me know what you think.
As always please watch and listen responsibly ♫
