VIDEO: Christopher Jackson, Sasha Hutchings, Yo-Yo Ma and More Come Together for 'Variations on America - Our Land 2020'

This project celebrates the U.S and encourages everyone to exercise their right to vote.

Christopher Jackson, Jacqueline Bolier, Crystal Monee Hall, Gaby Moreno, Sasha Hutchings and many more have come together for an artistic collaboration, expressing what our country means to them and encouraging people to get out and vote.

"This new collaboration, "Variations on America - Our Land 2020", was born out of artists working together during this challenging moment to voice what "this land" means to each of them. Their voices and movements are woven together into the musical tapestry of this film, celebrating this great nation, and encouraging all people to exercise their right to vote."
