Music Crush Monday: JOSHUA HENRY Shares “Stand Up” & Teams with DoSomething.Org for MLK Day of Service

Joshua Henry shares “Stand Up,” a cover of The O’Jays’ 2019 song that calls for love, unity and to “stand up.” It feels more relevant than ever in today’s climate.

“Stand Up” is the second single from his upcoming debut EP Guarantee (S-Curve Records/BMG), produced by close collaborator Theron “Neff-U” Feemster (Michael Jackson, Dr. Dre, Justin Bieber, Doja Cat)Guarantee showcases Joshua’s immaculately powerful voice and his intelligent storytelling background, brilliantly pairing themes of vulnerability, love, and hope born out of the pandemic.

In line with the spirit and lyrics of “Stand Up” and the upcoming Martin Luther King, Jr holiday, a national day of service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities. A portion of the proceeds from “Stand Up” will benefit is the largest organization exclusively for young people and social change, activating over 5 million young people (and counting!) to make positive change, online and off, in every US area code and in over 131 countries. Henry will also participate in DoSomething’s new ‘Strength Through Service program, which offers a curated group of volunteer and advocacy campaigns across different causes (COVID-19, racial inequality, more) for young people nationwide to show up for their communities.

Running now through February 28, 2021, Strength Through Service also offers young people the chance to earn verified volunteer credit hours by participating in the program. DoSomething aims to help young people reach a collective 25,000 hours of community volunteerism. Those interested in joining Joshua Henry in the Strength Through Service program can sign up at
