What a beautiful feeling

Mia Berrin of Pom Pom Squad released this cover of "Crimson and Clover" last Friday on Juneteenth ... with proceeds going to For The Gworls Medical Fund. (The Bandcamp sales went to the NAACP legal fund.)

Here's what she had to say about the track via Instagram:

This marks the first song we’ve released that I produced all by myself (!!!) and both the song and video were made completely in quarantine. This year would have been my first Pride as an ‘out’ person. It took me a long time to come to terms with my identity in a true and honest way, but I am proud to meet myself where I am now. This year, the idea of walking down a street proudly, in my queerness and in my brown skin, feels particularly difficult for a multitude of obvious reasons, but this song is my small celebration of the scary, complicated, empowering process of owning my black, queer identity. Hope you love it.
