Today we’re proud to give special RESPECT to Toronto rising star, Liz Loughrey. Not only is she beautiful with a marvelous voice, the reason behind her most recent single will instantly make you a fan.
On her most recent offering, “Rise Up!“, she delivers uplifting, bona-fide, and necessary vibes that everyone is more than likely able to relate to and appreciate. The record stands for positive change and is a call to get up and stop living a complacent life. Greatly influenced by Etta James and Sade, Loughrey is a genuinely old soul who creates a brand of pop that speaks to the past and signals a bright future.
“Rise Up!” is more than a song, it’s a movement. The #RiseUpMovement is all about telling the stories of people who are positively impacting the world and encouraging people of all ages and walks of life to Rise Up in their communities. We turn on the news and are constantly bombarded with negativity and so it’s easy to feel powerless, but the #RiseUpMovement is spreading the message that we can do amazing things when we work together.. when we make LOVE our theme, and PEACE our goal. – Liz Loughrey
With that objective in mind, Liz Loughrey has created the Rise Up Workshops. She is currently visiting schools across the country to encourage youth to think outside the box and start making their own positive impact on their community. The stories collected throughout her workshops will be shared on her website. Anyone can take part in the movement by submitting their own story on Social Media using the #RiseUpMovement hashtag.
“Rise Up!” is the debut single taken from her upcoming EP, which is set to be released sometime next year. Keep your eyes on the movement and make sure you get familiar. We love the record and everything it stands for, and we’re pretty sure you guys will too. Peep the visual at the top of the page, and feel free to drop us your comments.
