Rising star Michael Armstrong, along with back-up singer Steffen Holm and rapper PJ Cardozo "Tru Sound" used their voices - literally -  to take a stand on the world stage against human rights abuses and irresponsible sourcing practices from conflicted regions.  

In an unprecedented ballad of traditional song, instruments and rap, Mr. Armstrong uses his musical talents, as a world-class instrumentalist, singer and songwriter to say "enough".

Below are the song lyrics:

Marching from the horizon

Come the army and the guns
On a people who spend their lives
Bettering their sons
Day after day
They're kept in the dark
Dedication abused
For a waring cause
 
A friend of mine chips away for gold
Risking herself for guns and lives sold
People preach what they see and forget what they hear
Turn on your TV and let yourself disappear
 
Dear friend from the land of the free
My life is cut short for a degree
And I know a friend who's worked to death to gain holes in coats
And find minerals worth less than gold
Put your guns down put your hands and do it yourself
I'm tired for working for nothing but hate
I'm kept in the dark everyday, I ain't getting no pay
I'm just a kid, when you gonna let me play?
What's the abuse for it ain't fair
The country's collapsing and you don't understand
Raise hope for the Congo
That's what the theme of this rhyme goes
So take a stand, I beg you to do whatever you can
To get freedom to the Congo land
Yeah I said take a stand
And let's bring freedom to the Congo land
 
A friend of mine chips away for gold
Risking herself for guns and lives sold
People preach what they see and forget what they hear
Turn on your TV and let yourself disappear
 
A friend of mine chips away for gold
Risking herself for guns and lives sold
People preach what they see and forget what they hear
Turn on your TV and let yourself disappear
