"Baltimore Stand Strong" presents Navasha Daya soulfully at the top of her game. Supported by a stellar intergenerational ensemble of Baltimore’s finest musicians, and securely anchored by the anthemic writing, arrangement and production of multi-instrumentalist Fanon Hill, "Baltimore Stand Strong" is a must have!

“Baltimore Stand Strong” is the long-awaited lead single from the original motion picture soundtrack for Lom Nava Love, a documentary detailing the epic heroism of families living in public housing in Baltimore, Maryland. Featuring the honey drenched passionate vocal stylings of internationally renowned artist Navasha Daya and poetic writing/poignant production of multi-instrumentalist Fanon Hill, "Baltimore Stand Strong" serves as a 60’s-style R&B libation that soulfully captures the towering courage of a people holding up the sky in one of America’s most misjudged cities.

***"Baltimore Stand Strong" was recorded during the curfew hours imposed on Tubman City (Baltimore, Maryland) in the aftermath of the revolt that took place on April 27, 2015.
