Cellist, songwriter and activist Ben Sollee took to the Lincoln Monument in Washington, D.C. recently to make a musical statement to get people to vote.
Ben performed ‘A Few Honest Words’ at the iconic Lincoln statue in the US capital.
“Everyone’s voice important,” Ben said in a statement. “Performing in the Lincoln Monument was my way of expressing that desire. And, I still have the knot in my stomach to prove how intimidating it can be to speak out. So, please, if you do only one thing on Tuesday, VOTE!”.
The performance was filmed by Mason Jar Music. Watch it here:
