Gina Loring sings a lament for Trayvon Martin

Gina-LoringOrlando Sentinel-Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Gina Loring is asking people what the world would have missed if they had died at the same age Trayvon Martin died as part of a video tribute to benefit the deceased teen’s foundation.

The song and accompanying music video is hosted on; there, participants can send in a photo of themselves at age 17 followed by a current photo showing what they have accomplished since then.

The video features photos of people from all walks of life — actors, musicians, fathers, mothers, religious leaders and more — while Loring sings a lament for Trayvon and wonders about “the man he would have become” and “what he would have done.”

The song can be purchased for 99 cents on and 100 percent of the proceeds go to the Trayvon Martin Foundation.

      Ms. Loring speaks for the mothers who have lost their sons to senseless killings and murders. She speaks of the unfulfilled dreams, potential, contributions of our black sons, brothers, fathers, uncles, and yes future presidents.

      Gina brings the message HOME for me with her song and the then/now photos of all those great people.

    Beautiful tribute to Trayvon. You where somebody’s baby, you where somebody’s child, and now you’re in angel… just so beautiful and hauntingly sad.
