Rapper and humanitarian Chill E. B. will be on hand to announce the finalists of a nationwide song contest will be announced on September 26th at PostcardMania during a Block Party sponsored by the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), an independent watchdog organization. Chill E. B. has recently garnered attention for his music video Y’all Busted, exposing the violation of trust by psychiatrists in schools. The song contest is intended to help raise awareness of the harms of psychiatric drugs.
In the 1950’s, ADHD did not exist. In 1970, 2,000 children were diagnosed as being “hyperactive”. By 2006, a staggering 8 to 10 million children had been diagnosed with ADHD. A vast majority of these children who have been diagnosed have been given daily doses of methylphenidate – a drug correlated with disorientation, personality changes, apathy, social isolation, suicide and sudden death.
However, most parents are not informed of the harmful side effects of these drugs. They are not told there are no medical tests to prove that one single mental health disorder exists, and they are not informed of their rights to refuse to medicate their children.
This gap in knowledge is precisely why CCHR is holding the song contest. “Music and poetry are universal languages that can be used to communicate the truth to millions of families,” says ????
Ten finalists from the national contest will be chosen by September 14th. A panel of music professionals, including Chill E. B., will judge the final videos and decide on the top three during the Block Party. Chill E. B. recently informed the public himself with his video Y’all Busted, exposing the over diagnosis of ADHD in school age children
The top three videos will be heavily promoted on YouTube, and the grand prize winner will receive studio session time at the state of the art ClearTrack Productions recording studio.
The Block Party will also include a performance of “Y’all Busted” from Chill E. B., and a performance from Sally Gatza.
Tickets, which are $10 in advance, or $15 at the door, are available at (727)-443-8820. The Block Party will take place on Sunday, September 26th from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at PostcardMania, 2145 Sunnydale Blvd, Building 102, Clearwater, FL.
