Kirk Franklin, TobyMac and Mandisa tackle racism in new single
Grammy Award-winning singer Mandisa has linked up Christian-music legends TobyMac and Kirk Franklin for the release of her new music video "Bleed the Same," which she hopes will evolve into a movement that will unite all people.
"Bleed the Same" is a song off of Mandisa's 2017 album, Out of the Dark. The songstress purposely timed the release of the moving video around Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Jan. 15, since the message of the song directly corresponds with with Dr. King's dream that all people — black and white — be treated equally.
"Part of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s dream was that 'little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.' As I joined with TobyMac and Kirk Franklin, it is not lost on me that the timing of the music video release for Bleed The Same coincides with the weekend we celebrate Dr. King's legacy. Our prayer for this song is that is more than a hit song, but a movement of unity and love," Mandisa said.
