Like many Americans, singer-songwriter DeDe Wedekind noticed that our country seems to be even more divided than ever. So she did what songwriters do. The result is her new single, "America United", a song that she hopes will help "make America great again!" and help heal the divisions in our great nation.
Now on CD and available on iTunes, "America United", was originally scribbled in pencil on the back of a program as DeDe was sitting in her church choir loft, listening to an inspiring patriotic speaker. "The inspiration for this song came directly from God", says DeDe. "This message of re-unification for the hearts, minds and ideals of Americans is more important than ever, due to a marked increase in conflicts in our increasingly torn apart world."
"The message of "America United" is simple. It's about returning our country to peace, strength, safety, prosperity and greatness, by uniting all Americans", says DeDe. "It's my sincere hope that this song will help spark a movement to reunite all Americans at this crucial time in our history when there are so many racial, socioeconomic, religious, political, and other divisions in our country."
Award-winning singer-songwriter DeDe Wedekind was recently named Indie Music Channel's 2016 Best New Artist of the Year. Her new album, Dream of You (DivaPrince Productions), was released in February and won IMEA Album of the Year in 2016.
