The Artist Pledge

The ability to create is truly a God-given gift. God, the master creator, has given us all a part of himself. When a painter paints his energy he goes into every stroke of the brush.

Artistry’s purpose is to move you; inspire you; entertain you; persuade you; provoke an emotional response. Nowadays there are too many “artists” content with the profit that comes along with promoting promiscuity, violence, materialism, womanizing and drug abuse. Although art is a reflection of society, it should aid in it’s progression, not contribute to its regression.

Do people not know that the content they pushed into the world directly affects individuals, especially a young and impressionable one. Let’s use our divine talents to uplift others, realizing that this life isn’t all about you.

If you are reading this and you’re a writer, musician, instrumentalist, singer, rapper, poet or an artist of any sort I dare you to join this pledge. Pledge to inform, educate, lift the consciousness, inspire and entertain our audiences!

  1. Yes! Word! It’s our divine mission as Artists to “serve” rather than being served; and this throughout all our works. I am so upset when a singer I appreciate suddenly starts singing lyrics that are the complete opposite of the uplifting message that attracted me to their music in the first place.

    • I agree! And I also think it’s sad for them to say things like “I’m not a role model for your kids, you are” when they know full well little girls and boys everywhere will be looking to them as a guide, whether their parents approve or not. It’s important to teach our kids, so they know better though.
