Back in April of this year, (2014) I was contacted by a good friend (Jonathan Schaub) who received news that his childhood friend (Michelle Ploetz) had been shot and killed. We had recently been talking about all the killings taking place worldwide and much of which was taking place right here in the Midwest.
Upon receiving the news of Michelle we decided to honor her and so many others with this song. We began channeling positive energy and writing a tribute to Michelle. We were lucky enough to lock in a beat produced by the legendary Madison native DJ Pain 1 for the song. Then, we secured our good friend, and well known Madison Hip Hop Artist, Sincere Life to lay down some vocals to put together a very moving, yet meaningful piece of art. Our next step was to visually tell the story of losing Michelle, while bringing conscious awareness to the greater issue that is affecting us worldwide.
Finally, the production and completion of "Remembering Michelle" took place with the help of so many talented people. Throughout the music video you can see the pain of being at a crime scene, while also seeing the future of what could happen if we allow ourselves to stand silently and accept this violence.
Our mission is to spread this message of hope and to ultimately increase the peace.
