With what is sure to be a historic election season on the horizon, Tampa Bay’s robust arts community is getting the word out about voting in November.
Since Tampa Bay is rich with artists, it’s little surprise that a creative effort to promote voting comes with Voice Your Vote 2020, an original song and video that was a collaboration of local singers, songwriters, music and video producers, shot around Tampa Bay.
And what’s remarkable, is that most of this diverse group of artists, whose ages range from 16-77, had never met each other and all agreed to give their time and talent for free.
“As different as everybody was, they were committed to the idea to exercise the American right to vote,” said Michelle Passoff, who spearheaded the project. “We’re not saying who to vote for, or how to vote, just vote.”
