NASHVILLE, TENN (October 20, 2015) DJ Maj, the DJ for TobyMac's Diverse City Band, is celebrating the beauty of the power of community with his upcoming project via a new Kickstarter campaign. Launched this week, the Kickstarter campaign will fund a brand new project from DJ Maj set to release in 2016. This project is coming to fruition after a long journey for this world-renowned DJ, who can be seen currently on the TobyMac "This Is Not A Test" tour.

"This project for me is a celebration of a community who banded together to transform a life, my life," shares DJ Maj. "With this project and Kickstarter, I hope to communicate hope and export this story to the world. I'm ready to share what I've learned."

In 2003, a diverse group of individuals banned together to help raise funds for Maj for a correctional hip surgery needed due to a childhood hip disease - legg perthes. Fast-forward 12 years in January Maj was able to finally have this necessary and long-overdue surgery. Through this experience, banning together with those around him, Maj broke cultural race dividers.

"My inspiration is the result of a diverse community of believers who selflessly rallied around me during this long overdue hip surgery," states Maj of this experience. "There's so much to tell. I have concepts for a batch of new songs and a desire to get them recorded."

With this new album, Maj will feature songs and video documentation he's collected since 2010. He will tell this story - bringing a balance to the daily output of cultural division. He wants the global community to share in bringing his ideas and vision to life.

Join DJ Maj as he shares his story be a part of this community. View the Kickstarter campaign here, support his vision and take an early review the song "We Shine" from his forthcoming project. http://kck.st/1hNme4Z
