Kevin Ross Enlists Jacob Latimore & Trevor Jackson For Social Impact Anthem "Real Black"

Kevin Ross Enlists Jacob Latimore & Trevor Jackson For Social Impact Anthem "Real Black"
New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Throughout his career, R&B triple threat Kevin Ross has used his gift of song as a tool to spread uplifting messages of love and positivity. As a response to the social unrest that took place this year, Ross wrote and produced a song that speaks to the heart of the black community and culture. For "Real Black", Ross enlisted Jacob Latimore (The Chi) and Trevor Jackson (Grown-ish) and together they delivered an empowering anthem that is sure to define 2020.

About the project, Ross says "This song came together so organically. Started this song just days after George Floyd's passing. What I saw within the country and through social media was our culture showing a level of passion, conviction, and authenticity towards a cause that's bigger than us all. It was one of the only times that I felt everyone put their clout and BS to the side to stand together. Very honored to have Trevor and Jacob alongside me on this record. Three perspectives for one cause. There's no greater time to be young, gifted, and black."

"Real Black" appears on leading independent music distribution company and record label EMPIRE's compilation album "EMPIRE Presents: Voice for Change, Vol. 1". 100% of the streaming and merchandise sales from the project will be donated to the ACLU to support Racial Justice, Voting Rights, Criminal Law and Immigrants' Rights programs. In addition to "Real Black", Kevin Ross also wrote and produced "Something's Gotta Give" performed by UK Singer and Influencer Sonna Rele.

EMPIRE Presents: Voices For Change, Vol. 1 will be available on all streaming platforms on September 22. To presave the album, learn more about the ACLU and register to vote, visit: https://music.empi.re/voicesforchange1

The album's first single, "Long Song Away" peaked at #1 on Billboard's Adult R&B Song chart and at Urban Contemporary Radio with the follow up single, "Don't Go", cracking the Top 15.
