Gabriel, Amnesty International's ambassador of conscience and longtime supporter of the human rights organization, said:
“It was a race against time but it was definitely worth it. The Spirituals Choir is committed to telling stories of social justice to a new generation that marries very well with the one who inspired by Steve Biko.
“Now more than ever, we need as many people as possible to start addressing injustice personally and to get involved in any way possible. Amnesty has done amazing work all over the world that I believe is really important and supported for forty years, so I was very happy that I was asked to help with this beautiful film. "
