Maya Azucena Music Video

After many months of talking about it, I'm very proud to present my music video directorial debut, GET IT TOGETHER, by Maya Azucena.


Get It Together from Corey Leavitt on Vimeo.

NOW IS THE TIME TO REMIND AMERICA OF THE FIERCE URGENCY OF NOW...NOW IS THE TIME!”
Maya Azucena’s new music video, featuring the inspired Martin Luther King Jr. sample, is now HERE. GET IT TOGETHER, produced by DJ Black Panther, directed by SETH KUSHNER, is ready for your viewing pleasure.

Get It Together is an advance single from Maya Azucena’s forthcoming project. The song was meant to be a practical look at trading in self-hatred and violence for following your dream, and knowing your power. Instead of complex lyrics, Maya took the approach of writing a heartfelt sing-along triggered by the opening Martin Luther King Jr. quote. Now is the time to make a difference. Now is the time to live to the fullest capacity. Now is also the time to check out the video.

The Big Screen Debut of GET IT TOGETHER, presented by the FORT GREENE FILM SOCIETY, and promotionally sponsored by THE BLOOM EFFECT, will be at MADIBA’S in Brooklyn on WEDNESDAY JANUARY 28th. This FREE celebration party will feature the new video plus other treats, an impromptu acoustic Maya Azucena performance, and the spinning wheels of DJ Center.

Hey that's a great first Video.
Edited together seemlessly (is that a word?)
As I watched I forgot it was your video, and started enjoying it: period.

I live around the corner from Madiba, so I may see you on the 28th.

Great job, Seth. When I decide to make my music video, I'll know who to call.

That video was sweet!
Did you find the coolest looking people in NYC or are those just the people walking around? I always wonder that.
This is a great song coinciding with Obama's inauguration today! Great job Seth and congratulations! Your artistic cup runneth over ...
