CHICAGO, Sept. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Chicago singer Aya Ito is no stranger to the spotlight having performed all across the country this past year. And while touring has been extremely gratifying for this twenty four year old singer/songwriter, what really excites her these days is the work she is doing to raise awareness about the senseless violence happening in our nation.
Her latest single "Don't Take My Life" is her heartfelt plea to society to stop the senseless violence that is impacting so many lives. Whether the violence is racially motivated, brazen or black on black, she hopes this song is a cry for peace. "We all need to be inspired and uplifted. My hope is that this song can motivate everyone to stand strong together," says Aya Ito.
Produced by Smashtown Records, "Don't Take My Life" co-written by Aya Ito and Tonya Johnson has been heard on airwaves across the Midwest. Just recently, the song's moving video made its television debut on ABC7 during the broadcast special of the 91st Annual Bud Billiken Parade, the country's largest African American parade. "It's important for this song to be out right now in today's climate. While we are dealing with a pandemic it's unfortunate that on top of that we are constantly hearing about more innocent children being killed and lives being taken due to senseless acts of violence. We want to see lives saved and people living," says Darnell Johnson President, Smashtown Records.
