Afro Latin Soul artist, Glenda del E, launches her first music video, “L.U.P,” with an accompanying year-long new social media campaign called #LoveUnityPassion (#LUP) associated to Transdiaspora Network’s new strategic action plan and the United Nations’ post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The #LoveUnityPassion social media campaign will officially launch on September 28th, 2014, during TDN Tour to Health at the 40th Annual Atlantic Antic Festival, Brooklyn’s largest street fair.
“This song was written on a day I was feeling pretty close to the dream, vision and mission of what I wanted to be in life: express ideas into songs that could influence or inspire others. “L.U.P” video would not have been possible without the support of many who believed in me, and all together made this a dream come true with the forces of Love, Unity and Passion (L.U.P.),” stated Glenda del E, singer, composer, songwriter and music teacher.
The social media campaign invites global audiences to take a picture holding the handwritten hashtags #LUP and #LoveUnityPassion, and then posting it in Twitter, Facebook and/or Twitter and tagging it with the same hashtags.
“As Transdiaspora Network’s artist ambassador, I would like my songs to transcend the musical space into a much bigger platform where it could have a real impact on society inspiring and engaging youth (and the community at large) either at a local urban setting or in a remote rural village. I want to heal through music, to promote self-love and HIV prevention. This is a struggle, I believe, that we cannot fight alone, but feeling the need to spread Love and health, to be United as humans, and to have the Passion for social change,” expressed Cuban artist Glenda del E.
The “L.U.P” single is included in Glenda’s first studio album, “Q-ban mixology,” produced by Dave Gray, which is available on iTunes, Last.FM, CDBaby, Amazon and Reverbnation.
