Full Sail University partnered with United Way for #GivingTuesday

Full Sail University students Omar Maldonado, Tim Asunmo, Sophia Pun, Nadif Cadet, and Josh Davis first met at a songwriting club on campus. Immediately following the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando on June 12, Davis and other students set out to find a creative outlet to express their feelings. What was supposed to be a creative exercise, turned into "Together We're Strong," a masterful piece that purely captures the raw emotion of coping after a loss. The group partnered with Studio 18 to write, record and produce the moving track. The song was mixed and mastered by Recording Art Graduate, Manpreet, who did the mastering in the Mastering Suites inside Full Sail University.

"In today's heightened concerns post-election, "Together We're Strong" couldn't come at a more opportune time. The song speaks a lot about the things going on in the world today, inspired by the Pulse Nightclub shooting but expands far beyond that tragedy. The song is a tool to teach people how to love again, how to unite during hard times, and not fight. It is an anthem to show people that differences are okay, and it is alright to be divided but we all must live together in unison." - Josh Davis

The group partnered with Heart of Florida United Way, which operates the Orlando United Assistance Center (OUAC). Immediately following the Pulse tragedy, OUAC was established to provide support to those directly impacted by the incident. 100% of the proceeds generated from the song will be donated to the Orlando United Assistance Center. Although the songwriters decided to release the song for free, they have a goal to raise over $5,000 and are asking for a minimum donation of $5 per song download for OUAC to provide on-going support, like mental health counseling, to those directly impacted by the incident. Donations are encouraged.
Listeners can download the song for free with a suggested donation of $5 by visiting:

"The Pulse tragedy rocked our community to its core. It takes all of us, united, to begin the healing. Heart of Florida United Way applauds these Full Sail students on sharing their creativity and talents to not only assist those directly impacted through donations, but also the healing of our community as a whole through this powerful song." - Ashley Blasewitz, APR Chief Marketing Officer

Exclusive Interview: 804 Street Media CEO Lance Cooper

Last week, the staff of WITIN RADIO had the opportunity to meet with 804 Street Media CEO & Editor In Chief , Lance Cooper.During the interview we had the opportunity to speak with Lance on his life's work, his company's Social Media presence, and the state of Black America.

When did you launch 804 Street Media & what was the catalyst for you launching 804 Street Media ?

"The official brand evolved into a business around 2013, but the grind to put the 804 (Richmond. Virginia) on the map started back in the 1990’s. Everything started with hip-hop. In 1997 I had a rap group here in Richmond. Virginia was on the rise, we were actually the only rap group from Richmond to share a stage with Nas. This was around the time "It Was Written" dropped. Eventually, however the group parted ways. I put the microphone down and started promoting other artists. Coming from one of  the hardest places to "get on" from is Virginia, because support on every level…
