Come And See ‘What’s Going On’ With Teddy Swims

Teddy Swims, is an American singer/songwriter from Atlanta, GA. Swims stands for ‘Someone Who Isn’t Me Sometimes,’ a reference to Teddy’s struggle to integrate the different parts of himself. Teddy’s goal through music is to break barriers and bring people together. We love his music style and his unique voice, and we know you’re going to as well!

The singer has recently released a cover of Marvin Gaye’s classic hit ‘What’s Going On,’ and not only does Teddy nail it, the proceeds are going to a great cause … the NAACP! Teddy made a statement in regards to the new cover and donating to the NAACP, check it out below!

It’s been almost 50 years since Marvin Gaye released ‘What’s Going On’ and what was going on then is still happening now. This album inspired people to fight for justice and civil rights throughout the years and influenced me a lot growing up, especially witnessing my friends experiencing injustices I never had to face. I’m so grateful to all the black musicians, like Marvin Gaye, who’ve used their platforms to change the world and make music what it is today. As a musician who has been heavily influenced by black artists and black culture, I want to do my part to honor their legacies by spreading their message of love and by donating the royalties of this song to the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund.

[…] Teddy Swims covers ‘You’re Still The One’ in his brand new music video, and we’re swooning – it’s exactly the relaxed summer evening jam we’ve been looking for! The classic pop-country track by Shania Twain has been dipped in honey and sunshine. […]
