Alex Harris launches inspirational new single

Monday on The Catalyst Sessions, Alex Harris talked about his extraordinary new song, “Humanity” – a call for people to pause, just for a moment, and recognize that despite all our apparent differences, we’re the same.

“It may seem like a cliché now, but we’re in this together,” Harris said after a screening of the “Humanity” video. “And I think the pandemic, if it is one lesson to learn – well, I believe there are many – but we can all agree that it doesn’t matter if you have a lot of wealth or riches, who your acquaintances are, who your family is or not, we all were impacted emotionally.” And socially, and financially.

“Humanity” is a simple, plaintive plea for the realization and acceptance of our equality and oneness. Harris is a gifted rhythm ‘n’ blues-styled vocalist who makes the song’s soulful yearning that much more effective.

The song is part of a brand-new, recorded-during the pandemic six-song EP Harris calls Frequency.

The singer/songwriter also happens to be Dr. Alex Harris, the co-founder and CEO of the Arts Conservatory For Teens, an arts-based after school program for disadvantaged and at-risk youth that works under a contract with Pinellas County Schools.

ACT has actually been flourishing during these trying times, Harris reported, having survived the transfer to 100 percent online.

“We got hit pretty hard with our big fundraiser, I must say that now,” he said with a smile. “We just had to take the crumbs and stretch it – I mean, majorly.”
