Three videos have been created to support the EP with the following release dates:
September 4 We Can Do This Now (Lyric Video)
September 10 We Can Do This Now (Environmental Justice)
September 18 We Can Do This Now (Racial Justice)
The impetus for the song dates back to 2009 when Quincy was a rising star, performing on NBC’s The Carson Daly Show and L.A. radio station KCRW’s coveted Morning Becomes Eclectic. Her music was featured in film & TV including Fox Searchlight’s Waitress and NBC’s Brothers and Sisters. At the same time, Quincy graced the cover of Music Connection magazine; American Songwriter Magazine noted, “Not only has God graced her with a gorgeous voice, her songs are undeniably catchy.”
Shortly after a sold-out benefit concert in support of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society–Southern California at the Roxy Theater in Los Angeles in September, 2009, Quincy was diagnosed with stage IV cancer. “I was brought right back home to my soul,” she recalls. By taking responsibility for her part in the manifestation of the disease, “loving and listening” to the cancer in her body rather than fighting it, the healing began and reversed without western medicine or conventional treatment.
“I am living with stage IV cancer and so are you,” Quincy states. “The house of humanity is on fire with a stage IV cancer called racism. And the house that we know as Mother Earth is on fire with a stage IV cancer called climate change. If we can heed the call to action by taking responsibility for our part in the manifestation of this disease, choosing to love and listen to our black and brown brothers and sisters and the earth, then, and only then, will we be able to truly heal and transform, shifting into wholeness and harmony within ourselves, each other and the planet!”
