The Sunflower County Freedom Project from the Mississippi Delta is a program that seeks to enhance the education children from 7th grade until high school graduation. The children enter the program the summer of their 7th grade and from there dedicate their summers and after school times to furthering their education and developing skills in extracurricular activities of their choice. One of those extracurricular programs is their Hip-Hop club which meets weekly to create music. The children write the music themselves and use it as a means to express how they feel and what they see in their environment. "Dreams and Nightmares" is one of those creations.
Because of the great work that the Sunflower County Freedom Project is doing, I wanted to somehow try to help their program in the only way I know how, through music. Working with the kids to record their own original music in a studio at Delta State University showed me just how hard working these kids are and how dedicated they are to their goals and aspirations.
All of the proceeds collected from this song will go to the Sunflower County Freedom Project so that they can continue to change and enrich the lives of children in the Delta. I want to thank you for purchasing this song to support them, Delta State for being so helpful in the recording process, and finally the kids and staff from the Sunflower County Freedom Project because without them and their creativity and drive, none of this would be possible.
