Cover Drive, US Embassy team up

usambassadorlarrypalmerandcoverdriveThe United States Embassy and pop band Cover Drive have partnered to create a song called Speak Out, in support of the “No Witness, No Justice” school engagement project.

The song was written and recorded by Cover Drive and features the vocals of lead singers Amanda Reifer and T-Ray Armstrong as well as US Ambassador to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean, Larry L. Palmer.

Cover Drive and the US Embassy launched the song on Saturday on the terrace of the Frank Collymore Hall.

The “No Witness, No Justice” project involves teaching students the importance of doing the right thing by being effective and courageous witnesses to crime. It does this through role-play and education about the judicial system.

The band became involved in the project after the embassy held a regional conference for youth from Barbados, Jamaica, Guyana and all the islands of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States.

Reifer said: “We feel when you have a platform such as we have been given, that you must use it for positive things and this program is one of those positive things.”

The song is available publicly at
