11-YEAR-OLD EMCEE URGES PEOPLE TO VOTE IN NEWLY RELEASED VIDEO
Nya J’s call to vote is being heard all over YouTube

Seattle, WA, October 29, 2012–As the final week of politics heats up, everyone is sharing their opinion in one form or another including Nya J, an 11-year-old Seattle emcee. Her song and video, ‘All We Need is Love,’ releases today on YouTube, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2E1Dx_qulqg&feature=plcp, responding to the political debates she’s been watching on TV and how this election is going to impact her.
The song, off her upcoming debut mixtape, “Hold My Own,” speaks to an audience young and old about how our history and voting is important to make a difference in the world we live in.
The video addresses another side of the need to get out and vote this week. Nya J brings the importance of voting into focus with one simple statement, “Remember the way you vote today will shape the world I live in tomorrow.”
Her call to action in the video is depicted in a scene of a classroom as she and her peers discuss what they have been taught is outdated in the history books. “I don’t know a whole lot about politics, but I am learning and having fun doing it,” says Nya J. “It’s kind of weird to me because I agree with the Republicans on some stuff and I agree with the Democrats on some other things. I’m going to wait until I’m older to see which party I really like!”
The visuals of the video and lyrics of the song show a consciousness in the children who know more than they are able to express and Nya J gives them a voice. “Too young to vote, but need to be heard,” she cries on the steps of the Capitol building in one scene.
Her belief in the humanity of how voting brings people and communities together rather than dividing them through the political process is the chorus of the song. “It can be kind of scary saying certain things because you don’t want to make people mad, but I have been taught to say what I feel,” says Nya J.
At the end of the video it shows her mailing off the letters she wrote. “I really mailed the letters out to Obama and Romney,” she said. “I wanted to see if either of them call me or send a message back.” To date, there has been no response from either party.
