Dar.Ra - ‘Stand Up for the Heroes’
Dar.Ra’s latest single ‘Stand Up for the Heroes’ is a tribute to those working relentlessly to help fight the current global health pandemic. It is a solemn, strings, vocal and piano arrangement that perfectly defines the enormity of the situation in hand, and reflects a sense of gratitude to the front line workers fighting the pandemic.
The song creates an astounding aura around itself, solely through the depth of its lyrics - ‘So much is owed to you, and that sacrifice will never be repaid’, and perfectly sums up the world’s honest regard to the heroes of this pandemic - Refuse Collectors, Shop Sales Assistants, Hospital Porters, Care Workers, Nurses, Doctors, Teachers, and everyone who did their part, while we stayed safe within the comfort of our homes.
The Top Hitz Music Magazine has featured ‘Stand Up for the Heroes’ as the ‘Top Lockdown song’. Apart from this, it is receiving huge appreciations from music lovers across the globe and is definitely providing strength and resolve to the frontline workers - the heroes of the pandemic.
Apart from receiving public appreciation for his observation-based contemporary music, Dar.Ra has been a heavily featured artist throughout his career.
Dar.Ra infuses layers of vocals and instrumentation into each record he makes. The genius of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band by the Beatles, came to mind while listening to “Phenomenal”, “Back To The Brink” and “Heart Shape Pill” - Tune Loud Magazine, USA.
Dar.Ra has announced that he will donate all proceeds from the song - Stand Up for the Heroes - to ‘Frontline Workers’ Charities.
