Arizona Humanitarian Concert and Music CD Launching April 5, 2013, in Support of Earned and Legal Immigration Reform
For Immediate Release
Shirl Mora James, President – Civil Rights and Immigration Lawyer
Phoenix, AZ — We are happy to announce the launch of a humanitarian music CD that pushes for earned and legal immigration. We believe in communicating through art and music. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow once penned: “Music is the universal language of mankind — poetry their universal pastime and delight.” Many of us have fond memories when it comes to lyrics we identify with in songs sung by the likes of Bob Marley, Guns N’ Roses, Led Zeppelin, Rage Against the Machine, Pink Floyd and so forth. How is it that a John Lennon or Marvin Gaye song has everlasting global and sustaining reach when they sing of peace or war? We have come to the absolute conclusion that musicians and great writers are the ones who come up with memorably coined phrases and quotes leaving a lasting global ripple effect.
The Tequila CD consists of music created by new emerging Latino artists and poets across the country. Throughout 2011 & 2012 the National Tequila Party Movement visited universities and cities in an effort to help get out the Latino vote pushing support for pro immigrant politicians. We hosted tequila party rallies (countering the extremist tea party movement) in states such as Arizona, Nebraska, Kansas, Nevada, Texas, Florida, New York, Indiana, Michigan, and more. New emerging Latino artists performed at our tequila rallies and created songs with regard to the immigration movement.
A portion of our CD sales will go to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) students since they have to approximately $575.00 for documentation fees + attorney fees, and the other portion of our CD sales will go to Mexican-American artists who helped contribute their talents to this important message.
Our goal is to communicate through music with regard to the humanitarian aspect of immigration. Mexicans and other immigrants are not asking for a handout – they are seeking earned legal immigration reform. Chicanos and American citizens are here to push the American Dream, and we know that when our Nation continues to be a Beacon and a light to the Globe – blessings come our way.
The launch of our Tequila CD will take place on April 5, 2012. We will be having a concert to promote our CD in the heart of where the draconian anti-immigrant law originated.

Music taps into emotions of the human spirit and it also connects it to a memory. The world is ready for new and emerging talented lyricists and musicians who are able to express ideas that embrace love, life, and positive political messages. Musicians who have a sincere concern for the direction of our nation ought to rise up — because the time is now for their message to be received by others in the most memorable medium possible.
They say Spanish is the language of love and it is wonderful to hear the fusion of English and Spanish music challenging hate and bigotry.
