HIVE OPEN MIC 🎤🎶 WEEK #119/ WE SHALL OVERCOME BY PETE SEEGER

▶️ Watch on 3Speak


Holler Hive Open Mic 🎤 community, I trust we're all doing good. As always I'm super excited to share my entry this week. This week's theme Prejudice as chosen by recent spotlight artist @lisbeth26 is a really deep one. Prejudice is an irrational hostile attitude, fear or hatred towards a particular group, race or religion.

In line with this week's theme "Prejudice" I'd be performing a classic by American folk singer and social activist "Pete Seeger" called
"We Shall Overcome". We shall Overcome is a gospel song which became a protest song and key anthem of the American Civil rights movement which was then focused on nonviolent civil rights activism. It quickly became the movement's unofficial anthem, and it was being sung at rallies, folk festivals and concerts which made it widely known.

The song "We Shall Overcome" offered courage, comfort, and hope as protesters confronted prejudice and hate in the battle for equal rights for African Americans. Prejudice still happens till date around the world. The message of the song is "A world of equality". My race, ethnicity, colour,religion doesn't change who I am, It doesn't matter,we are one….let's all walk hand-in-hand. I do hope you enjoy my cover of this powerful song. 🤍&💡

LYRICS
We shall overcome,
We shall overcome,
We shall overcome, some day.

Oh, deep in my heart,
I do believe
We shall overcome, some day.

We'll walk hand in hand,
We'll walk hand in hand,
We'll walk hand in hand, some day.

Oh, deep in my heart,
I do believe
We shall overcome, some day.

We shall live in peace,
We shall live in peace,
We shall live in peace, some day.

Oh, deep in my heart,
I do believe
We shall overcome, some day.

We are not afraid,
We are not afraid,
We are not afraid, TODAY

Oh, deep in my heart,
I do believe
We shall overcome, some day.

The whole wide world around
The whole wide world around
The whole wide world around some day

Oh, deep in my heart,
I do believe
We shall overcome, some day.
