Originally developed as a way to inspire Take 5 with GPS viewers to articulate ways they can become agents for change and good in the world, G. Phillip Shoultz, III (GPS) started the #liftmyvoice challenge. Now, Phillip is inviting the entire VocalEssence community to take part in the challenge.

The process is simple.

  • Make a short video recording of yourself with the following: My name is _____________(first name only) and I will lift my voice by/through ___________________________.
  • Send that video to gps@vocalessence.org and also post it to your social media platforms with the hashtag #liftmyvoice.

Your video will be featured on an upcoming episode of Take 5 with GPS and will also become part of a video montage set to Andrea Ramsey’s song I Lift My Voice.
