Liz Loughrey’s ‘Rise Up!” Video Elevates
When you take a powerful voice, a beautiful message, and a video that portrays people in need of hope and love, you get Liz Loughrey’s Rise Up!. Within the first 5 seconds of the song starting, you get overwhelmed with a voice that would make you pause a conversation to say, “Whoa, wait a second… who is this!?”
Her name is Liz Loughrey. She’s a talented Toronto-based Soul/Pop artist. With over 2 million views on her Youtube channel, Loughrey has managed to create a devoted and growing fanbase by winning their hearts with her soulful sound blended with uplifting lyrics. Greatly influenced by Etta James and Sade, Loughrey is a genuinely old soul who creates a brand of pop that speaks to the past and signals a bright future.
Written and produced in Miami by Liz Loughrey, Adrian X (The Weeknd, Drake, Kylie Minogue) and Supa Dups (Drake, Party Next Door, Mary J Blige) Rise Up! is a catchy and refreshing song which stands for positive change. It’s a call to action that says “it’s time to stop living a life of complacency or in the words of the song, it’s time for us to ‘take less and give a little more’.”
Loughrey adds “Rise Up! is more than a song, it’s a movement.” The #RiseUpMovement is all about telling the stories of people who are positively impacting the world and encouraging people of all ages and walks of life to rise up in their communities. We turn on the news and are constantly bombarded with negativity and so it’s easy to feel powerless, but the #RiseUpMovement is spreading the message that we can do amazing things when we work together.. when we make LOVE our theme, and PEACE our goal’.
Rise Up! is the debut single taken from her upcoming EP which is set to be released sometime next year. Check out her new video below. Then watch it again… and again!
