ATLANTA, GA (December 20, 2021) -  GRAMMY Award winner, songwriter, soul singer, and activist Damon Little current radio single “Stand Up” hits #1 on Billboard Gospel AirPlay and Mediabase Radio charts this week. Powered by radio promotions firm By Any Means Necessary the emotionally charged song spends 44 weeks in the Top 30 making it the longest running radio single in 2021 on Billboards Gospel AirPlay chart. Additionally, “Stand Up” lands at #8 on the Year-End 2021 Gospel AirPlay chart and Little ranks #10 on the Year-End 2021 Gospel AirPlay Artists chart.

On October 19, 2021, the Baltimore native premiered his long-awaited seven-and-a-half-minute-long concept music video for “Stand Up.” The powerful imagery comprising the music video for “Stand Up” presses classical Civil Rights Movement concepts and themes including one of the most famous sites in Civil Rights history: the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, where, in March 1965, peaceful protesters were attacked by police engaged in the enforcement of segregation. Half a century later, Little takes to the Bridge with a group of marchers and throws a celebration of his own — and reminds us all of how far we still have to go. He’s also provided us with plenty of footage of Selma, including nighttime shots of the disused Washington Street Supermarket, the imposing Dallas County Courthouse, and the moving plaques in the Civil Rights Memorial Park. When Little stands up before a judge and defends a client beaten by the cops, his call for justice echoes across the entire storied city.

“Stand Up” is a call for unity, equality, and compassion — a firm and friendly handshake offered to humanity on behalf of God. Little has always put advocacy at the heart of his project: he’s consistently spoken out on behalf of civil rights and universal brotherhood, and he’s raised consciousness and promoted education about ostomies, a medical condition that affects half a million Americans. The new song follows the artist’s extraordinary run of gospel hits, which include the defiant “I Won’t Be Defeated,” the prayerful “Because Of You,” the heartfelt “Be Alright,” and many others. Released on February 5 via Little World Music/Partners Music company, “Stand Up” is produced by Bubby Fann and Damon Little who’s also credited as the song’s sole songwriter.

Lauded by a warm reception from music critics across the country the miniature movie continues to gain rave reviews:

There’s no dismissing this as amateurish; this single is cut from an iconic cloth ~ Michael Stover, musicexistance.com

Damon Little croons “Stand Up” to lyrics that sound culled from late ‘60s message music and an arrangement that evokes ‘70s Al Green ~ Robert Marovich, Journal Of Gospel Music

Little exhibits a surplus of warmth and positive energy, singing and testifying in a voice that simultaneously evokes Sunday service, a smoky jazz club, and the soul classics of Al Green and the Spinners. ~ Jerry Doby, TheHypeMagazine

He’s literally riding the beat, and while that gives this track more of an R&B aesthetic than some gospel purists might be comfortable with, it’s precisely what’s going to bring this player even more attention than he would have received otherwise. ~ Mindy McCall, IndiePulse Music Magazine
