Many artists throughout the years have used music to make major statements about things going on in the world. We have Michael Jackson with "Black or White" and "We are the World" to name a couple, Pink's "What About Us," Zolita's "Fight Like a Girl," Logic's "1-800-273-8255," and very recently, Charlie Puth's new song "Change," which he debuted at March for Our Lives Los Angeles.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you like music that makes a statement? There are many people who disagree with entertainers getting involved in such things because they're only there to "entertain us," but then there are other people who believe it is their job to make statements because they have influence due to their careers. Do you have any thoughts on this?
This can be taken as a debate, so let me state that everyone's opinion on this matter counts. No one is right or wrong, and we are all allowed to believe how we will.
I personally think that it should be up to the artist. I love when artists use their music or talents to make a statement about something that is important to them. I think it can speak volumes. However, I do not believe it is their duty.
