Rising star Leslie Cours Mather’s “We Are America”is a rallying cry for unity. The new single is at radio now, and is available for free download from Mather’s website to fans who join her mailing list.
Mathers wrote the compelling song immediately after 9/11. “I was heartbroken,” she recalls.
But all over Los Angeles, you’d see countless American flags flying from cars. Our country was unified – briefly.” Leslie, a self-professed Army “brat,” admits to feeling a certain level of disappointment when LA Lakers’ flags replaced the stars and stripes just a few short months later. “I think that if people are indifferent we have a problem,” Mather states. “It seems more important than ever that we remember that we are a people united by this country we call home … united we stand; divided we fall. That’s what ‘We Are America’ is all about – and why we’re releasing it now.”
The single is already generating an outpouring of accolades from radio personalities, programmers and music reviewers:
Her emotional, high-powered delivery leaves no doubt about how close this song is to her heart … (with) a bold arrangement and a powerful celebratory chorus … she puts out the call for everyone to band together as Americans …This is the right time for this song, period, and it’s delivered by a singer who’s got the goods.” – MUSIC NEWS AUSTIN(Rick Moore)
Thank you Leslie for standing up for God, Family, Country and Our Troops! We Love the song and we will always have your back! Stand tall!! You are the real deal!” – COUNTRY THEN AND NOW RADIO (Tommy & Angela Mouser)
I always try to bring a message of hope and goodness into my music,” Leslie says. “I think anyone from a military family has a heightened sense of patriotism; I certainly do – and my hope is to see people fall in love with America again.”
