Performance of ‘Cryin in the Streets’ by Artist Zeshan B

Zeshan B, a Chicago-based American Muslim artist, premiered his cover of this civil rights anthem just two days after the ‘Muslim ban’ was announced.

His powerful rendition humanizes what so many marginalized communities are experiencing today. This song was released by American Songwriter Magazine and is available on YouTube.
