Dan + Shay have been generally dormant via social media since early March, yet that changed on Saturday evening (May 30) as uproars and fights seethed in a few urban communities all through the nation over the ongoing police killing of George Floyd. The hitmaking pair went to internet based life to encourage fans to “utilize your voice” and help roll out a positive improvement in America during this dubious time in our history.
The couple comprising of Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney have been quiet via web-based networking media since directly after they reported that they were deferring their booked 2020 The Arena Tour because of the flare-up of the coronavirus (COVID-19). In their Saturday message, they clarify that they have been preparing the arrival of new music and have been intentionally venturing endlessly to concentrate on that, also we as playing it safe truly.
Dan + Shay write that they felt compelled to speak out in light of those events. “This is not the first time this has happened, but by God, please let it be the last,” they write fervently. “We, as humans, MUST come together to make a change. Racism and discrimination because of someone’s skin color is just simply WRONG.”
The duo say they’re hoping their stand will inspire others to speak out, too.
“We must educate our children and instill values of love and equality. We are all born innocent, and racism is something that is learned. Let’s work together, NOW, to make a change. Please use your voice.”
