Aloe Blacc, grammy nominated singer and songwriter, takes us on a journey of how music from the past and present can be used as a source of inspiration that leads to positive social change.

Grammy Nominated Aloe Blacc released his major-label debut album “Lift Your Spirit” in 2014 on XIX Recordings/Interscope Records where it debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The set follows Blacc’s collaboration as vocalist and co-writer on well-known DJ/producer Avicii’s track “Wake Me Up,” a song that topped the charts in more than 100 countries and is Spotify’s most streamed song to date. Blacc’s single “The Man” topped the charts and with more than 2.4 million singles sold. In 2014, Blacc also made his acting debut in “Get On Up,” the James Brown biopic.
