The CrossRhodes – Praying Prayers

Freddie Gray. Korryn Gaines. Sandra Bland. Eric Garner. The now-familiar names continue ricocheting throughout “Praying Prayers”, the new music video from The CrossRhodes from their 2017 album Footprints on the Moon. The powerhouse duo of Wes Felton and Raheem Devaughn remind us that “When the video was shot, 667 people were reportedly murdered by police officers since January 2016” in the intro to the Xaivia Inniss video providing a taste of dangerous life on the streets. With so many huge problems besetting Americans of all races, creeds and orientations, we crave art to show us what’s important and the consequences of inaction, even if solutions remain elusive. Check out their recent appearance at Bob Boilen’s Tiny Desk for a delicious mix of concert, spiritual service and motivational rally.
