Meet Jaysin Voxx, who has released a timely, positive pop song called, “A BETTER WORLD.”
I interviewed Jaysin about all his inspirations, reasons for writing the song and his goals.
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO WRITE THE SONG, “A BETTER WORLD”?
JAYSIN VOXX: “Michael Jackson has always been a great influence for me, perhaps in ways that other artists don’t usually mention. You see, I see MJ not just as this amazing performer, dancer, singer, but I look at him in a World view.
“MJ was always aware of his surroundings, trying to improve the World we live in, with his music, with his outreach, with his giving. I always found it inspirational that every one of his songs you could probably play in church, or for your grandma. I mean, he did have “Dirty Diana”, but in the end…it wasn’t really that dirty.”
“So, I look up to Michael Jackson still today because I believe and know music has power, and we should use that power for GOOD, to Heal, to Unite, to Save. Like my song says, “Music…People We Gotta Use It…Because the Music Gon’ Heal The World Tonight…”
HOW DO YOU HOPE YOUR SONG WILL HELP HEAL THE WORLD?
JAYSIN VOXX: “I want my music to be part of that healing.I even put that line “Heal The World” in my song because I believe in it so deeply! I want my song “A Better World” to do just that, Make it Better. We need to really think of the people of the World as joined, as one. I for one, will always strive to give back.”
WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO ACCOMPLISH THROUGH RELEASING IT?
“I hope to raise money with my music to be able to travel and perform my song and have a team with me to help build houses, help with global medications, and anything else that is needed in places around the globe. I want this song to be the anchor for me to create many missions to show the World some kindness and not feel so divided. We truly need each other.”
DID GLOBAL EPIDEMIC AFFECT YOUR VIEW OF THE WORLD?
JAYSIN VOXX: “I feel that CoVID-19 has finally proven one very important thing. That as we go about our lives in different countries, seemingly not affected or even caring about their lives versus ours, that finally, its so very obvious with this Pandemic, that we are all connected. We DO breath the same air, we DO suffer together, and we DO Heal Together.”
WHY DO YOU FEEL YOUR LYRICS ARE IMPORTANT NOW?
“This song is important because we musicians have a duty to be better examples, don’t you think? Stats show more people listen to Music Artists and Celebrities than they do their own Government, or even Family.”
WHAT ELSE DO YOU HOPE TO ACHIEVE THROUGH YOUR MUSIC?
“I want to be the change for something better in Music, to change the current depression and constant promomtion of drug use in songs and artists ( esp in the U.S. ). I want my music to Heal and Inspire, and Lift Us Up. I believe happiness leads to prosperity.”
HOW HAS MUSIC HAD A POSITIVE AFFECT ON YOUR OWN LIFE?
JAYSIN VOXX: “Positive Music in my life has been very helpful to me. Positive Music has kept me in school caring about my grades, kept me from being sucked into drug abuse that was going on with a certain group of friends in high school, and ultimately Positive Music has always been a beacon that showed me, I can be successful, even famous in the Music Industry and actually do it with a good image, without a ton of tats, and create music that makes people happy and inspired.”
WHERE DID YOU GROW UP?
JAYSIN VOXX: “I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, my Dad is a Navy man, my Mom took care of the house. The Bay is expensive and we didn’t have a lot. What we did have was we are all musical people. My Mom and Dad both sang in the Church Choir, my Sister plays incredible piano, and I started singing at 3, performing in church at 5.”
HOW DID THOSE EARLY DAYS INFLUENCE YOU AS A PERSON?
HOW CAN POSITIVE MUSIC IMPROVE MENTAL HEALTH?
JAYSIN VOXX: “Mental Health and Positivity are so easily overlooked it seems. It’s important that all us really focus on mental health, especially at stressful times like these. I wept when Italy was hit so hard by the Pandemic.
Positive Music is often the best medicine to reduce stress and provide comfort, even help us be better people.
I felt the pain Doctors must’ve felt in China when they were trying to get the word out last year about Covid-19 and were denied and prevented. I was horrified when I saw all the deaths in one day in New York City.
I don’t believe we can truly feel for each other until we start seeing each other as tied together. I also believe God has given me the ability and soul to feel those pains and fears and the need to reach out.”
“There is a lot of great production and music these days, but I believe the bar for Lyrics and Songwriting is at an all-time-low. It’s funny, I think of how you never hear negativity come from such successes as Bill Gates, Sean Combs, or Will Smith and yet many aspire to live like them, be them. ”
WHAT OTHER ARTISTS INSPIRE YOU?
“I’m encouraged to see recently that Selena Gomez and Katy Perry are trying to use their music to bring about some good. It’s often such a contradiction that usually the most popular songs lately have some of the most depressing and negative messages. I want to change that.”
WHO DO YOU HOPE TO REACH MOST WITH YOUR MUSIC?
JAYSIN VOXX: “I have a pretty young demo, 13-17 mostly and I believe I have a responsibility to give them something better to look up to.”
WHAT’S SOMETHING POSITIVE YOU WANT TO SEE POST COVID-19?
JAYSIN VOXX: “The only truly good thing that I know and want to come out of this Covid-19 Pandemic, lockdown, social distancing, etc is that….WE ARE ONE. 2020 has proven, We as a World will Perish or Survive Together. “
ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO ADD?JAYSIN VOXX: “This World is like a relationship, it takes work. We must bond together to Survive and appreciate this great, diverse, wonderful Planet of ours, and really make it A Better World.”
WE AGREE. THANK YOU, JAYSIN FOR A GREAT INTERVIEW.
