“Destination Hope represents a place of encouragement & inclusion in place of resentment & division, a place where there is no racism or discrimination. A place where people have respect for one another, their communities and the environment. It’s very easy to get caught up in the negativity & that leads to hopelessness. In these trying times, I sought to create a mood that would uplift people and give them a sense of hope. The destination is in the journey to get there; to actively & compassionately stand up for something better for ourselves & future generations is to cultivate hope.”

– Maurice Brown

Destination Hope is the first single of Maurice’s upcoming album The Mood release date March 10, 2017.
