Spread Some Love by Tasha T (Canada/Jamaica)

Peace has always been one of my highest values. When I’m at Peace, I feel happy and free within myself to bring true happiness to everyone. Peace within ourselves comes when we care for the well-being of others. That will bring unity among our people. I use my music to communicate social justice and equal rights for all nations on this earth, to promote Peace and love. It’s all about the message in the music.

My music is uplifting, educational, and has inspirational themes and stories. The messages are drawn from my personal experiences as well as others that have been shared with me. I communicate the messages to my audience to help this world be a safer place and to overcome any obstacles that we all face in everyday living.

I wrote ‘Spread Some Love’ to promote Peace and love to the people of the world, to educate listeners about what is occurring now with all this gun violence and how it affects all of our citizens and especially children. The song encourages people to show some love by caring, sharing, and creating a peaceful environment for the children of today.

This song is for all those who can say and exemplify in their communities that love is the answer, and love is the only way for the world to live in Peace and harmony. We need to think about the children of today growing up in this world that we have created. The children follow and learn what they see and what they are being taught. It’s time now that our people wake up and build a brighter future for us all.

I was born in Toronto, Canada, to Jamaican parents who taught me to love and live in Peace with our brothers and sisters. I was always surrounded by positive music that my mom would play, like Bob Marley, Burning Spear, and Dennis Brown. Ever since childhood, listening to these icons, I have known what I wanted to do with my life. I have never wavered from my dream of motivating people with inspiring and uplifting music in an effort to make the world a better place. I also serve as the Music Ambassador for the Read Across Jamaica Foundation, encouraging young children to read and learn as they grow. We’ve got to think about the children because they are our future. Through music and education, we can all work together to create Peace in our communities and throughout the world.

As a musician, my mission is to encourage and spread positive messages through my music so we can all have an open mind and live a happy and successful life, no matter the race, creed, or colour. I would tell other musicians that we are the voices of the people. Think positive, and find a way to help nations through music. Music is power, and the power is in the music.
