about

The first two statements of this melody rang in my head for months but the rest of the melody and lyric didn’t land until late summer of 2020, after I’d experienced several months full of conversations about race, class, and caste that I never imagined I’d see in my lifetime. The airing of truths seemed to put new possibilities on the table, and despite the pandemic, I started to feel hopeful again. In my world, these melodies represent something of a conjuring, so the track was named words like “incantation” or “invocation” at some point in the process. But after working on the record started to feel a lot like “church,” this track which features Kyshona Armstrong and Mikayla Braun on backing vocals, simply became the pre-service prelude.

lyrics

My American heart
My American heart
My American heart is alive with the fire
In the promise of tomorrow

I’ll speak my story
I’ll sing my song
My American heart is alive with the fire
In the promise of tomorrow
