The tragedy in Uvalde, Texas, has forever scarred the Latino community in the United States. The deaths of 19 children and two teachers at the hands of gun violence marked one of the most terrifying events in U.S. history.
And singer DSwervo has words of encouragement and awareness for the victims and her community.
The Miami-born, Lil Haiti-raised artist, has decided to pay tribute to the victims of Uvalde with her new song “Me & Mine,” inspired by grief but to open the eyes of the entire world.
“I look around, and every time you turn on the TV, another mother loses a child, another family is crying, it’s getting out of control,” said DSwervo in a press release. “I just wanted to make a song to shine some light on these problems. I want people to know they aren’t alone in their suffering.”
The video was directed by Christopher Diaz and brought to life the famous singer’s second single.
With a lonely and tough upbringing, DSwervo knows what it means to have a community on your side.
As reported by Urban Magazine, this young artist’s music has caught the attention of industry veterans, Kanye West included.
At the age of 13, DSwervo was discovered by her teacher, Ms. Walker, and her husband, Sunny D.
“While much of Miami’s female rap scene is centered around sex, money, and twerking — DSwervo is offering a new sound and different topics of discussion,” the magazine explained.
