In this new entry in our ‘Diamonds In The Rough’ category, we want to introduce you to upcoming artist Hilary Roberts and her brand new single titled “Better Than This” featuring Brenda Ellis.
Released on Martin Luther King Day (15th January), “Better Than This” serves as an expression of self-reflection, acknowledgement of past wrongs, and a commitment to positive change. This anthemic ballad functions as an apology to people of colour (POC), addressing historical and ongoing issues related to prejudice, fear, and systemic oppression. The song emphasises the imperative to admit mistakes and calls for collective action in the pursuit of racial equality and unity. This collaboration between philanthropist Hilary Roberts and gospel singer Brenda Ellis delivers an inspiring message, urging open and honest conversations as a means to overcome adversity. The synergy between these two remarkable artists amplifies the song’s impact, creating an unforgettable track.
