Marsha Ambrosius Tackles Suicide In Video For “Far Away”
Marsha Ambrosius‘ sultry new single “Far Away” (produced by Just Blaze) made waves as soon as it leaked online, but today’s release of its accompanying video is having the most impact.
The clip tackles the ongoing issue of bullying and violence towards members of the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) community, focusing on young, inner-city African-American males in particular.
Within the video, a letter from Marsha to her fans is featured:
Every year, over one million people commit SUICIDE. Some were bullied because of their SEXUALITY. I lost a friend to SUICIDE, and I’m asking all of you to support alternative lifestyles. Don’t put up with or join in with BULLYING. It’s time we become more aware in this WORLD. Take responsibility to make a difference. So if my MUSIC can save one life, I’ve done my job. I love you all so much!
Marsha’s upcoming debut solo album, Late Nights & Early Mornings, is due for release February 22.
