Crystal Monee Hall Releases 'A Beautiful Noise' Cover

Monday December 28th, just ahead of the Georgia Run-Off elections, singer-songwriter Crystal Monee Hall releases a poignant video of her gospel inspired, activating arrangement of "A Beautiful Noise" originally written by multi-Grammy winning Alicia Keys and Brandi Carlile. Hall has gathered some of her fellow songstresses and artists to use their voices and join the fight to flip the Senate in January with this musical reminder that we ALL have a voice/vote and they matter.

Hall enlisted some heavy hitting vocalists for this project: Allyson Kaye Daniel, Adee David, Rosharra Francis, Angela Grovey, Celisse Henderson, Amber Iman, Anastacia McCleskey, Kristina Nicole Miller, Rashidra Scott, Tasha Michelle Smith, Anastasia Talley, and Rebecca Covington Webber. With music by the incomparable Michael O. Mitchell and Joe Bagale.

"I wrote this arrangement in celebration and support of the women, Stacey Abrams included," says Hall, "...who are on the front lines of the fight for democracy and justice in Georgia." The activated artist Hall continued, "...And if enough of us gather our voices and sing in unison, we will make change. This is about using your voice, and being heard. Standing up and being counted."

Music Video was directed by Angela Grovey, edited by Nate Wind, sound mixer Germono Toussaint, and mastered by RIch Morales. Piano/Organ/Bass by Michael O. Mitchell, and drums by Joe Bagale.

Runoff elections for both of Georgia's U.S. Senate seats are taking place on January 5. For more information about voting visit www.peachvote.com - www.fairfight.com - www.Iwillvote.com.

Crystal Monee Hall : A self-proclaimed "church girl," grew up belting from the choir loft, enamored with her mother's singing on Sundays in Richmond, Virginia. Years later, she has performed in the National Tour and Broadway productions of RENT, worked with such varied artists as Mickey Hart, Renee Elise Goldsberry, Thomas Rhett, Ben Platt and Kristen Chenoweth, and composed and sang for the Bay Area's Jazz Mafia. Her own original music, the featured on her debut album, "River Train," and two EPs, Three Days in Nashville, and If You Breathe, recall the sepia-toned memories of her southern childhood. Hall's music re-interprets vocal and composition styles immortalized by the likes of Bessie Smith, Donny Hathaway, and Joni Mitchell. The result is something akin to the imagined love child of Sam Cooke and Tracy Chapman, a prophetic fusion of folk, gospel, and regional blues that allows the listener to fall into the murky intersections between love and hate, pride and sacrifice, heaven and hell. Crystal's music is a call to action. Crystal has provided supporting vocals for mega artists including Elton John, Mariah Carey, India Arie, Ledisi, Kesha, John Legend, Thomas Rhett, Ben Platt and more.
