India Arie’s Longtime Producer Inspires Men to ‘Man Up’

man upAward-winning producer Shannon Sanders, who helped craft India Arie’s Video, Brown Skin, Little Things, I Am Not My Hair Cocoa Butter and Just Do You, has released a song and video of his own.

Man Up,” a catchy call to action for men to step up and raise their sons, finds Sanders successfully showcasing his vocal prowess. “It takes a man, to teach a man, to be a man,” he sings on the hard-hitting tune.

“Thanks to my grandfather, uncle and dad, I was able to receive truths about becoming a responsible man…things that I could pass along to my [children]…those insights became a song,” shared Sanders. “It’s important for men to honor their commitments and to be responsible. Learning to ‘Man Up’ is a daily process for us all and I’m simply hoping the song will seek to not just remind men about our roles in the community, but inspire and encourage them too.”
