The comic talent that we have in Milwaukee. Let's check it out this is voices against violence and the voices against violence coalition and right after you hear the songs were gonna talk to the artists who actually wrote the lyrics for this on. And get their story behind it this is Sunday morning. At. Breaking news and then he shot at a loss to gun violence on us. Streets in the monsoon investigators say.

Mean we rely on machine hundreds and stop the violence is your chance. Don't warn children newborn children. Nine year. Pain. Yeah they didn't Muster. Well. In the country and it might be because and I think it that would sound. Trying to make a party to a homeless yeah it is clear to me. A place and we constantly. Understand this about me. Yeah and. She and me and yet. She hasn't. We. There's nobody nobody is saying yeah. Facing these things I say we I mean time it's nobody's timing comes up. The schools and I think. A senior yeah. My job. And Michael bass and it's strange little sarcastic his ankle pitches on the same time passing game. And go home. Pena. Kansas. Yeah. Name. The normal time. Byron sickening. Prime cause of sudden. Old yeah. Industry yeah and they. In my so yeah. Seeing some of Pakistan and then less than pain in the. The wind. It's going to. I'm behind this. Games in Maine again. That you trust that's what we hear the gotta buy the book. Love them at his. I love racing maybe it's because we've got to come. So bad enough now. Thank you. Yeah show you who's best. Including. A key cities. Yeah yeah. It it was all. Yeah. 100% Milwaukee ground voices against violence and almost every artist that you heard that song we've gotten a studio this morning. Let's get their story behind. The lyrics were so let's go through everybody was involved in the song really critical serviceable so Michelle McCormick poker room because I'm first time from CBS that GS you the first voice the entire play a reporter on the. Track can guess how did that I saw the FaceBook post I've reported on Tracy off and as coalition against violence and I I try and find a way to inject myself and the community at times not just in tragedy but it times of great prostitute and a and so when I saw the FaceBook post and he was looking for contributions sec dot all this is far easier for me to go in the studio may be laid down a report. As opposed to trying to get the rights from the TV station to use an actual broadcast. And so I thought that would be the way to do it because I wanna get to reflect. Not just. The negative reporting that goes on in the city but also the resolution report in which I think local median Milwaukee. Does sometimes without enough credit. About showing efforts to street sees him voices against always great so it's kind of work becomes life life his work and I might sound a very difficult. Particularly in the issues of violence insulting to separate my job from going camps in your singing well on track as well so now that was just staying in the studio at that doc top talked me into you and again it's beautiful here the voice of an Angel we you know what it's what I. It's what I date that's very kind of PO I told Tracy he'd like to use it. You don't necessarily have to use my voice it's kind of what I seeing the in the studio from what I can't say on television on because before is elated Jenkins switch is still an unsolved child murder. And happy foresee Erica heightened pitch at least they were able to get some justice for her family for me. It was a little girl named to seek jasmine Owens. Shot dead on her grandmother's front step in the culture juicy because she'd look juice boxes. One in my first. Child crime victims I got a report on and that remains unsolved as well so. That was a thing that I really at the most looking through all the violence is how many of them go without arrests and it was terrible like I was looking at the statistics. I think as of late April 25 there was thirty to violence as thirteen that's. By violence it's standing or shooting or any form of violence. And so to stop the violence on it was gonna go through the song as we go to the sucked at any first is Abby comes up first on the sung Korea and it. On to raise your track come from a tummy by year's rent. It's just really glad to be invited to be a part of this project and so as soon as I knew I was going to be apart of it I started. Writing my neighbors and the main message does China get across in my neighbors was that. Violence affects everyone and despite our differences. We all deserve to feel happy and safe in our neighborhoods than. Yet doesn't just affect one certain demographic it affects all like even if it doesn't directly affect you on Ike. The people who are affected like maybe your family are just things you see on the news like that if taxi to. Absolutely. That would flow into skillet Shonn. On you do on December 21 it looked up and say hi to me just so excited to meet yet my well being and that she met you and chooses what. Whoever is very nice you're lucky man he had no agreement so John what is your first come from where did you com. Where's your inspiration well at a group on the south side of walking toward its thirteenth in Lincoln feature Burnham and it's still. One of those things where you when you when you grow open area that's subjected to a lot of you know gang violence and different things street activity you tend not forget about most of it I'm it's always around in all 29 years old neck is still remember lake everything from. Things that I see when I was 161512. Now my adverse purse say is basically a blatant lake this is. No this a 100% think you can actually find on May be Michelle McCormick's McCormick's. Newscast thing like this is something that's every day. There's nothing fabricated about it you know blood on the concrete. It is getting out of hand and is hard to understand. And the one thing that I was really questionable about putting down this is how we made all these months is a man and that was one thing that I was wondering about because. These are mistakes these are choices people make and it takes five seconds to. Retract their choice and make a better choice now people don't really see that they're just so emotionally involved and and instead of anger and rage and frustration you make a decision to split second when you I think somebody else in life and tired ever and certainly in that affects yours forever you know you know. Nice so that's the space who are came from. Thank you Sean and enough amigo in now was it pollution but back here but who pollute get sent around blue again. They couldn't hear us today so set out to them the probably listen at home. There we go to jazz. Jazz is up next in the sun jazz are you doing what I said out of bounds affecting do you like this how how does your verse. The to tell me about your first. Well part of the summer grew up on the sell side live on the north side now sub and all over the city and for some reason that seemed to be a magnate to it I've seen a lot of violence thumb and victim of it. No me in my daughter here got shot at last year after hitting run much. Yeah rain that neighborhood couple blocks from mouse and mean luckily they got caught there were witnesses people in and they did OK as did you know like seven years so I mean it's it's over with but all over didn't run. My numbers was basically saying. Talking about real people pulling out their guns too quickly people reacting and getting angry. Kind of fi feel which onset about just the emotions and it. Too emotionally Emeka or a decision to quickly react over something. And if people would just take a little more time if we had more a little more love patience and compassion. Oh we can settle some of these beefs that people have out here and don't take care of our children you know let people be safe from the community. Thank you jazz were taught and all the artists who were on this stop the violence on that we're gonna play here a couple minutes but since everybody is affected by violence and everybody wrote their own thirst throw local Milwaukee artists we went.
