Art for Peace and Justice artistic director Dr. Tim Seelig sent me the link to the group's first music video, "Red State Blues," featuring local diva, Denise Lee. Fun stuff, but go to the actual YouTube page and check the heated comments.
Art4PJ is the artistic arm of Hope for Peace and Justice with the objective to "utilize the arts to educate, enlighten and inspire people and thereby create a cultural shift toward peace and justice" by using artists from all media. After finishing a 20 year tenure as the artistic director of the Turtle Creek Chorale, Seelig took the Peace and Justice helm at the beginning of August. -- Rich Lopez
