DJ Maj, the DJ for TobyMac's Diverse City Band, is celebrating the beauty of the power of community with his upcoming project via a new Kickstarter campaign. Launched this week, the Kickstarter campaign will fund a brand new project from DJ Maj set to release in 2016. This project is coming to fruition after a long journey for this world-renowned DJ, who can be seen currently on the TobyMac "This Is Not A Test" tour.
"This project for me is a celebration of a community who banded together to transform a life, my life," shares DJ Maj. "With this project and Kickstarter, I hope to communicate hope and export this story to the world. I'm ready to share what I've learned."
In 2003, a diverse group of individuals banned together to help raise funds for Maj for a correctional hip surgery needed due to a childhood hip disease -- legg perthes. Fast-forward 12 years in January Maj was able to finally have this necessary and long-overdue surgery. Through this experience, banning together with those around him, Maj broke cultural race dividers.
"My inspiration is the result of a diverse community of believers who selflessly rallied around me during this long overdue hip surgery," states Maj of this experience. "There's so much to tell. I have concepts for a batch of new songs and a desire to get them recorded."
With this new album, Maj will feature songs and video documentation he's collected since 2010. He will tell this story -- bringing a balance to the daily output of cultural division. He wants the global community to share in bringing his ideas and vision to life.
