Students of the Guitars Over Guns program, in response to the tragic loss of Jakyri Fleurimar (age 15), are releasing a remake music video of Wiz Khalifaâ€™s hit â€˜See You Againâ€™, at PÃ©rez Art Museum Miami (PAMM).
Replacing verses of the original song with their own lyrics, GOGO students such as Xavier Gustave, cousin of Fleurimar, had the opportunity to express themselves in honor of Fleurimarâ€™s memory and the many others lost to senseless gun violence. The song and video remake, which involved more than 80 Miami-Dade County Public School students, is a community call-to-action; a platform for those who can still speak up, want to be heard and want to make a difference.
This special screening, hosted by Local 10 Anchor Neki Mohan, will be the first public showing of this project, promising to engage the community in conversation surrounding solution-based actions. As part of the eveningâ€™s program, messages of encouragement will be delivered by Miami-Dade County Public Schools Superintendent Alberto Carvalho (via video), WSVN 7 Reporter Ann Keil and Commander Francisco Fernandez of the City of Miami Police Department.
Students spent months writing, rehearsing and editing this project, which was recorded at Noisematch Recording Studio in Wynwood, and filmed at North Miami Middle School with a special appearance by members of the North Miami Police Department.
