Little Grace x Tee reworked Black Eyes Peas’ ‘Where Is The Love?’ as part of the LIMF Academy’s SONGS OF EQUALITY series.

“I remember first hearing ‘Where Is The Love?’ when I was about 9; it was the first time I checked my privilege. I felt the empowerment, and the need for togetherness. The fact that the original track holds weight still to this day gives reason for a remix with revisited lyrics. We just hope that the people who hear this know that we stand with the black communities around the globe, and our future and past generations can be made aware of the atrocities that systematic racism has allowed by the hand of the British empire”.
“This is one of those songs where when it first came out, it was massive, but I don’t think the lyrics truly came across as powerful as they were because they were presented in a ‘pop song.’ So for me its always been a song that has the potential for the power in it to always be brought out. The reason why I think it was worth picking, was because even though this song came out in 2003, it is scarily relevant today. I’m hoping that this time around, because of the way the world is at the moment, this time we are actually on the cusp of real change”.
