Why Partner With Us?
Message in the Music is an established 501(c)(3) corporation with the purpose to use music and the performing arts to promote unity and love in the inner-city communities and beyond. Message in the Music channels the creative talent of the artists to raise the community’s collective conscious awareness around social issues that impact our communities.
Individual empowerment and self-determination have always been strong components of the organization. Established in 2018, by our founder Mr. Edward Tate, the organization was conceived and organized to address a community-wide effort to counter the attack against our youth, women, and our future by promoting positive messages in music focused on the healing, unity, safety, and the development of our communities.
Across the United States, a recognizable need has developed for the provision of advocacy and awareness to the community about police brutality, unity, black-on-black crimes, love, and domestic violence. Washington D.C. is rated one of the top ten cities in the United States where gun violence and violence occurs. Violent crime wreaks a terrible impact not only on individual victims, their families, and friends but also on nearby residents and the fabric of their neighborhoods. Exposure to violent crime can damage people’s health and development, and violence can push communities into vicious circles of decay. In 2014, African Americans constituted 2.3 million, or 34%, of the total 6.8 million correctional population. Nationwide, African American children represent 32% of children who are arrested, 42% of children who are detained, and 52% of children whose cases are judicially waived to criminal court.
Since establishing we have been able to develop, showcase, and mentor over twenty-five artists that have inspired and motivated the entire community. Hip-hop originally started as a positive musical expression in the inner-city. Unfortunately, it has been altered to be a social destructive tool waged at the minds and souls of our youth. We are seeking to change that by developing young artist that will use their talents to promote positive messages through their lyrics and music.
