ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, November 1, 2022 – Erica Thomas, a State Representative from Georgia has released the official video & audio for new her song 'Betta Vote' featuring Scotty ATL. The hip-hop tempoed sing-along anthem is intended to encourage people to get out to the polls on election day. Representative Thomas's goal is to get all people, from both sides of the aisle to cast their ballots.
"I created this song as a fun way to get people to participate in this election no matter what party they are voting for. Change doesn't come from sitting on your couch, it comes from being proactive!" states Representative Thomas.
She partnered with local organization Rep GA to create 'Betta Vote.' Rep GA is on a mission to train, build, and serve a civic empowerment community that amplifies diverse representation. The organization believes the inclusion of culture like art, music, food, and even fashion deepens its goal of empowering citizens to act.
Executive Director of Rep GA Kimberlyn Carter states, "Community and Culture Leaders like State Representative Erica Thomas, Scotty ATL, and hitmaker BlacElvis produced more than a song and video; they produced an agent of change, an agent of action with this civic engagement hit "Betta Vote". The track, the hook and the visual elements of voting deliver and connect. Integrated civic engagement takes into account myriad issues our communities face and the activities required to fight for political power. We believe "Betta Vote" is a movement song as we aim to get out the minority-focused vote in this midterm election and every election. Rep GA elevates the voices of marginalized populations by designing a civic empowerment community built to fortify a future where representation across leadership equally represents all. You BETTA VOTE!"
Esteemed music producer Blac Elvis was more than happy to produce 'Betta Vote.' He states, "This Project is important to me because our freedom is at stake, and voting the right people in place will insure fairness and equality where it's necessary!!!"
Early voting is now open until November 4th. You can also hit the polls on Election Day, November 8th!
