Tea party musicians unite: Tea Are The World!

Imagine, black rappers who are not "down" with Obama's agenda. Young punk rockers saying "Hell No" to Obama bankrupting their future. From Country to R&B to Rock & Roll and every other musical genre in between, June 5, 2010, Conservative musicians from across America gathered together in unity at a Florida studio for a historic recording session. Their mission, to take back their country and support the families of fallen U.S. military.

The project is titled, "Tea Are The World."

In my past travels on three national Tea Party Express bus tours, numerous musicians have approached me with CDs of their original songs, protesting Obama, celebrating the greatness of America, honoring our military and defending our values; all eager to hop on the bus and be involved in the infectious Tea Party Movement.

On Tea Party Express III tour, I had the pleasure of chatting with a new member of our TPX team/family, Gold Star Mom, Debbie Lee, the president and founder of AmericasMightyWarriors.org, a 501c3 non profit which aids the families of U.S. military fallen soldiers. Debbie's highly decorated son, Marc Alan Lee was the first Navy Seal killed in Iraq. Debbie candidly shared with me her fund raising challenges.

Thus, inspired my "eureka" moment. I decided to write a song and invite conservative musicians across America to record it. In the recording style of the original "We Are The World" back in the 80's, various artists would sing a phrase of the verses. The entire group of 100 singers would join in singing the choruses.

Then, we would sell the recording with all proceeds benefiting AmericasMightyWarriors.org. This would fulfill two purposes, one, involve and unite conservative artists across America and two, assist Debbie Lee's worthy organization's need for funding.

Along with the group recording of my song titled, "Taking Back America," we expanded the project to include 40 songs selected from hundreds of submissions. "Tea Are The World" was born.

The "Tea Are The World" package includes: Lloyd Marcus and the Patriot Singers singing "Taking Back America," two discs of 40 conservative songs covering numerous genres and a DVD of the "Tea Are The World" music video and the Making of "Tea Are The World" Documentary.

We were extremely fortunate to land the owner of Deltona Records, master music producer/engineer, Frank Starchak. Starchak has produced the greats from Tupac Shakur to the Osmonds. He graciously took on the herculean task of recording and editing the soloists and 100 voice choir on the song, "Taking Back America." Starchak also mastered the 40 other songs included on the two music discs in the "Tea Are The World" package.

Legendary singer/songwriter Tom Snow, who has written hits for Cher, Barry Manilow, The Pointers Sisters and many others, contributed a song to the "Tea Are The World" project.

Very special thanks to Tea Party Express for their sponsorship of the "Tea Are The World" Project.

"Tea Are The World" was extremely well received at it's world premiere at the Virginia Tea Party Patriots Convention. I invite you to view the "Tea Are The World" music video and Making of "Tea Are The World" Documentary trailer.
