14-Year-Old pop Artist Zeigh-V Shares New Anthem For Loss Of Young Life, ‘Gone Too Soon’

Up-and-coming pop star, ZEIGH-V‘s new single, ‘Gone Too Soon, ‘memorializes young people lost too soon to tragedy, addiction, and battles with mental illness. Zeigh-V says, “This song is to encourage young people to refrain from taking substances because we have already lost too many lives.”

Hailing from Atlanta, Zeigh-V is the first artist to be signed to A-POP ® Entertainment for a good reason. Zeigh-V is the embodiment of what A-Pop Entertainment represents: youth making a positive impact on society. Under direction by A-POP® Entertainment creator Jim Joyner and other musical influences, Zeigh-V has created a distinct, unique sound for herself, having a rich and mature vocal presence even though she is only 14 years of age. Zeigh-V is captivating, down to earth, and positive – she is something the music industry needs in this day and age.

When asked what she wants to accomplish with her rising music career, Zeigh-V states, “I want to be able to help my peers who feel alone. I want to be able to lift their heads up when they feel like they can’t.”

Expressing the issue of rising youth issues of today, the founder of A-POP ®, Jim Joyner says: “Over my life, I have seen many issues that are affecting our youth. I knew a girl who was my friend in 8th-grade art class who was self-harming. Today, we are losing one teen every 10 hrs to fentanyl-laced pills. I asked myself :“What could be done about it?” I am the owner and president of Allstar Video Pitching Simulators, so in 2017, I began to pour my heart and financial resources into a brand new genre of music which I named A-POP ®.”

‘Gone Too Soon’ was released last Friday (2nd December). Have a listen below…

Song of the Day: Tedious – Xondra

Taken from her much anticipated EP, ‘Tedious & Brief’, released early this month. New York-based singer and songwriter XONDRA‘s single, Tedious’, is a fervent ballad about finding the strength to reclaim time, energy and love.

“It is a song for the people that love so much and so hard that they sometimes forget to save some for themselves; it is for those learning to step out of survival mode and really live in the present,” says Xondra. “’Tedious’ is me putting myself first. It is me allowing myself to to walk through the hard feelings I was having and still be hopeful that good times were coming down the road for me.”

Often blending elements of pop, rock, R&B and indie-pop, her music explores feminist themes with heartbreakingly honest delivery. Through the six-track EP, Xondra shares her experience of being a woman trying to survive in a man’s world. “I wrote this story for all of the people who have been hurt by the people who were supposed to love and keep you safe,” she says. “I wrote Tedious & Brief for all the people learning to speak up even if their voice trembles.”
