Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Melanie Fiona joins a long list of artists to take a stand and speak out on important social issues through their art.
In her new video for “I Tried,” an emotional and battered Melanie draws attention to police brutality, racial inequality, domestic violence, human trafficking and more.
Melanie released the following statement about her latest video:
“It is important for me to channel the ideas and concepts I am passionate about into my music and my art. As an artist with a social platform, I feel it is my responsibility to do so. The video for ‘I Tried’ is a tribute to the fight in which we all witness and experience both internally and externally in the world daily. The conversation of important issues should not end when we turn the TV off. I hope this visual sparks emotion, thought, dialogue, reflection, and ultimately, positive change.”

“I Tried” will appear on Melanie’s upcoming third studio album Awake.
