Several Baltimore middle school students in Living Classrooms’ Believe in Music Program have come together with many of the city’s most popular musicians to record the song “Believe in Baltimore,” a plea for positive change in the wake of the riots.
All of the song’s lyrics were written and sung by the students, with help from members of Future Islands, Lower Dens, Celebration, the Bridge and Mt. Royal, as well as Caleb Stine, Letitia VanSant, Cara Satalino and others. Baltimore filmmaker Chris LaMartina shot the music video, which was produced by 15Four. One of the largest collaborations in the history of Baltimore’s music scene, the project is the result of a partnership between Believe in Music, a program of Living Classrooms Foundation, and Towson University’s WTMD. The song and video will be officially released Wednesday, July 22.
