Candiace Dillard Bassett Donates Proceeds From Latest Song To DC Students In Need!

Candiace Dillard Bassett has released a remix of her first single I See You. The track which features a collaboration with go-go icon Anwan "Big G" Glover of Backyard Band, is now available for purchase and stream on all digital platforms. "I See You, the Remix ft. Big G @anwanglover of THE @backyardband and @bossofthebeat is out RIGHT NOW on all platforms!! 🔗 In my bio!!!," the Real Housewives of Potomac star wrote on   April 21 via Instagram.

Dillard Bassett reveals that 15% of record sales will go to DC Education Equity Fund. The fund supports families in need of digital resources like Wi-Fi hot spots to make distance learning easier as stay-at-home orders remain in effect amid COVID-19 pandemic.

"👉🏾the world is changing right in front of us. I can’t ignore that — especially while asking you to buy my song. For the first two weeks, 15% of my record sales will go to the #DC Education Equity Fund #DCEdEquityFund supporting @dcpublicschools students and families impacted by #covid19. You can donate as well at 🌍dcedequity.org @dcedfund @communityfndn @edforwarddc
Let’s #stayhome, support our urban school districts and J A M gogo style 🎹🥁🎷🎸🎤🎼. Love❤️"


"I always knew that I wanted to do a song to pay homage to the city that raised me and that I adopted when I moved here," Bassett told WUSA9. Basset, who grew up in Atlanta, said, "I moved to D.C. in 2005 to go to Howard University, and D.C. did a number on me as far as growing me up."

"My sister is an educator in DCPS, and I have many friends who are educators in DCPS, so I've heard from them about the ways they've had to adjust to struggle, and the ways that a lot their students, parents and families are struggling to do this distance learning,," Bassett said.

She added, "$50 is enough to buy a Wi-Fi hot spot for one family, so you can do so much with not a lot."

The go-go song is a remix of a love ballad she wrote to her husband, Chris. Bassett worked with Grammy-nominated producer Chucky Thompson and WHUR's DJ Iran to produce the track.

‘I See You (Remix)’ is now available to stream and purchase on all digital platforms, such as iTunesApple MusicAmazonSpotify and Google Play.
