“Fight On” – Harlem Gospel Travelers

By Bob Marovich

“Fight On” by the Harlem Gospel Travelers was written by one of its founding members, twenty-year-old Thomas Gatling, in response to everything that’s happening in the country.

The Harlem Gospel Travelers, under the mentorship of recording artist Eli “Paperboy” Reed, recorded “Fight On” almost immediately after Gatling penned it. All proceeds from the sales of the song on Bandcamp go to The Movement for Black Lives.

Check it out. It’s like a twenty-first manifestation of the ’70s group the Voices of East Harlem….the message is still relevant fifty years later.
