Teaching the different vocal parts of “Our Future is Stronger than Fear” for Oakland Pride Run 2021

Hello friends, this is not a performance: I’m recording this because awesome singers from the Queer Arts Center might be singing this at the Oakland Pride Run (due to disabilities and medical concerns I’m not able to perform physically in-person shows, and it’ll be hard to stream outdoors).

Please check out https://ift.tt/3Ajwfj6 for info on Oakland Pride Run, organized by Kin Folkz!

Lyrics are here: https://ift.tt/2VHlx71

I’m going to post chords later in the comments, or will update the above googledoc with lyrics.

Here is a link to a non-looping vocal-trio-plus-drums acapella version of the song (from a few years ago, with slightly different lyrics) https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=CcBxFzUMJLI

Today, this was sung and played live-on-the-spot through live looping. Please excuse the occasional frog in my throat — there’s a 463,000 acre wildfire about 50 miles from me, and I temporarily turned off the air purifiers to record this (to minimize background noise).

Also, correction to my statement at 6:43– in the full song, the first and second (not third) chorus is melody-only. However, in group performances, all the choruses are in 3-part-harmony except the opening “May you be safe” one.

I’d love to share this song with the community, even when I currently can’t perform it in-person out in the world, and would love for other folx to sing it!


Note from Zennie62Media and OaklandNewsNow.com : this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a YouTube channel. When the video is “liked” by Zennie62 YouTube, then it is automatically uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective here, on top of our is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours – is the use of the existing YouTube social graph on any subject in the World. Now, news is reported with a smartphone and also by promoting current content on YouTube: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary, or having a camera crew to shoot what is already on YouTube. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
