Caribbean gospel artist, Wilburne, brings another song of hope, reminding the world that we will get through this current pandemic.
Wilburne, who hails from the island of St. Lucia, has not let the pandemic put a damper on his dreams of singing.
After COVID-19 left him jobless, Wilburne has dedicated his time to give people hope by doing covers of different gospel songs every Saturday afternoons via Facebook live. He has featured and collaborated other gospel artists from different Caribbean islands such as local singer Kelvin Cassius, Joshua Joe of Guyana, Marvin Finn and Horenzo Chambers both of Jamaica.
On July 24 2020, Wilburne took things a step further by teaming up with his decade-long friend, J.None of Florida. The two wrote a hit song entitled “Get Through This” inspired by the current state of the world due to COVID-19.
The beat was created by local artiste/producer, Kelly Indigo of Psyc Soundz Studio.
The song “Get Through This” reminds us not to lose hope even if the picture may sometimes seem grim and, also encourages to show love to one another.
This message of love is also directed towards those on the front line in all parts of the world putting their lives at stake day by day so that we may have a fighting chance at survival.
J.None and Wilburne decided to donate half of the proceeds of their song towards the front liners in the battle against the deadly virus and also to the Black Lives Matter Movement.
To support this cause, download or stream the song which is available on all digital platforms or via this link.
