BALTIMORE COUNTY, Md. (WJZ) — This Wear Orange Weekend has amplified the conversation surrounding gun violence across the country and in Maryland.
At Ephiphany Episcopal Church in Lutherville Sunday, voices joined together against gun violence.
Performed by a choir for the first time, the song “Can You Hear Us Now?” is a call to rally together against senseless killings and stand up for the voices of those who are lost.
“I’m hoping that the people will listen to the kids. That’s the major thing. And not just the kids of Parkland, but the kids all over the world,” said Eugene Jones, Jr.
Jones composed the song during music lessons at the Lutherville Music School.
“He came to me with the idea of “Can You Hear Us Now?” and it really struck a chord with me,” music school instructor Bruce Anderson said. “I went home and just kind of, some words came to me, as far as building a movement with different voices.”
