“Shut It Down!” A protest song by Parzen Family Singers…

Tell me what you want, what you really want!


Tell me what you need, what you really need!


Last month, Parzen family took part in Lights for Liberty (A Vigil to End Human Detention Camps) here in Houston. It was part of a nationwide protest that took place that evening.

We’ve been protesting and marching a lot in recent years. And it’s always a rich and compelling human experience — tapping into a shared desire to make the world a better place.

I wanted to capture that energy in music and so I went about setting some of the chants to a beat. The result was the Parzen Family Singers’ first protest song, “Shut It Down!” (below).

Happy Labor Day weekend, everyone, and thank you for listening.

Always stand up for and speak out about what you believe is right. Those are words that we live by at our house.

  1. Fantastic cause, and I love to see when people are including their families in stuff like this to show kids their values. I appreciate you showing this side of yourself here!
