Listen to Raye Zaragoza’s new single

And that video is something else – caution: politically charged. 

The video for American Dream is inspired by the destruction that followed Donald Trump’s election, the lack of mainstream media for Standing Rock and Zaragoza’s own life as a female multi-cultural youth.

The single was co-produced and mixed by Justin Hergett (Beyonce). Zaragoza’s previous videos went viral, collectively garnering almost a million views. She has been deemed as a voice for young women from a multi-cultural background.

The ease and lightness of her voice makes you almost forget how serious the issues are she is singing about and yet, that is exactly what draws you in and keeps you listening.

Zaragoza’s past anthem In The River has been awarded No.2 protest song by a person of color by Paste Magazine. She has also been featured on numerous Spotify playlists including, Cyndi Lauper’s Protest Songs playlist. Zaragoza will also be doing an upcoming TedTalk about multi-culturalism in the entertainment industry.
