Quindon Tarver has recently released his brand-new single “Stand Our Ground” – which is now available to stream on Spotify!
Quindon Tarver is no stranger to the entertainment world. As a child, he featured in one of the most iconic scenes in film history in the 1996 film adaptation of Romeo and Juliet. Shortly after, he released his debut album titled “Quindon” with the first single being “It’s You That’s On My Mind” which cahrted globally.
Quindon’s cover of “Everybody’s Free (To Feel Good)” and his rendition of Prince’s “When Doves Cry” was on the soundtrack of Romeo and Juliet and went double platinum – selling over 2 million copies. All of the above was achieved at just 13 years old.
Although he had phenomenal success in his career, the industry was a dark place for the young singer as he constantly experienced traumatic abuse. He started to focus more on himself and his well being after leaving the limelight.
After a long period of time, Quindon is back with his 2020 single “Stand Our Ground” – which was written after the recent and tragic murder of his cousin who was a victim of police brutality. The track is an anthem for African-Americans living in American and having to live with this fear every single day. The political and social climate that surrounds police brutality hits close to home for the singer, so he decided to release a song discussing racial injustice, and to express his disgust of the way African-Americans are treated in his country.
The Black Lives Matter Movement, and the fight for justice and equality should never be silenced. “Stand Our Ground” will empower you with determination to make a difference in the world. Quindon Tarver is no longer that sweet, innocent 13-year-old boy that people fell in love with in the 90s. He is now a man that has experienced injustice, and is out here ready to tell his story. And the least we can do is listen. No justice, no peace.
