Jackson Township (Coronavirus Pushback #19) Music Video - UPDATE ver.1.26
About The Project
Let me begin by wishing everyone the best of health during these difficult times.
The purpose of this music video is to highlight the musical and artistic talents that have arisen out of Jackson, NJ. Additionally, I want to support the local businesses, especially those that are adversely affected by Covid-19. This non-political project starts out small (as ver. 1.0), and will be updated as more folks participate. There are no monetary costs for you to be included.
In the video, the residents of Jackson will have an opportunity to demonstrate their resourcefulness and creativity while under this "Stay At Home" order.
Release Date - Saturday, April 11, 2020. Watch the video.
