About

Who are We?  My name is Roy H. Howard, Jr., and I am a musician, composer, director, veteran, author, and founder of Relationship Diversity. Presently, I am working with a diverse group of professionals in the Austin, TX, area to create a music video for humanity.

About the video:  This video aims to inspire solutions of unity (through the healing power of music) for the many problems that plague our world today.  It is based on one of my original compositions: “Let Your Spirit Flow” inspired by the commonality of the human experiences rather than the differences.

Why this project?  Every day we are exposed to more and more division and hostility through the media outlets; but, where are the solutions? The idea behind this project is to promote a conscious movement of positivity—worldwide that challenges humanity to put prejudice, injustice, and hatred aside and uplift justice, love, and acceptance. I believe we as individuals have the power to come together and choose peace, love, and unity.

Why we need your help:  In order to bring this project to life, we are in need of funding to create a high-quality video that conveys our message. Your generous donations will go towards a film crew, lighting, equipment, stage props, production, design, travel, translations, and choral training.

Goals:  Our goal is to distribute this unique video of unity throughout the world via social media outlets, organizational outreaches, and Relationship Diversity in order to inspire positive change in the hearts and lives of everyone it touches.

Thank you for your contributions, support, and prayers! 

 

Risks and challenges

Due to the "all or none" policy and the 60 day goal deadline limitation, their is a risk of ample funds being raised within the limited time period which may cause production delay; however, I am confident that the vision will be supported by fellow friends who believe in this mission.
