All it takes is for a person to turn on their TV or log onto social media to see thousands of examples of how divided America can be. People are attacking our country, our leaders, and in the process ourselves. It appears from the outside that we are so separated that coming together is almost impossible, but that’s not what singer and songwriter Jayna Lininger sees everyday in the 2 grade class she teaches. Says Lininger, “I have kids from all races, all religions, and from all walks of life…they all get along just fine so we must be learning hate as we get older”. With her students in mind, Lininger decided to make a difference in the best way she knew how, through her music. And that is how the “Together” project was born.
“Together was written as a means to bring people together” says Jayna. “I am trying to use the powerful tool of music as a way to show people that we can all learn to work together to make the world a better place”.
As Jayna’s elementary school students were the inspiration for this song, she had students collaborate and give their ideas for what the song means to them. The kids even worked on the music video for the song. Says Jayna, “With everything going on in the world it is easy to get caught up in the negativity and divisiveness but it’s important to remember how things looked through the eyes of a child. This song is a reminder to all of us that we are much stronger and can accomplish so much more when we stand united…together.”
