On July 9, 2020, Stonedef Records, Inc., announced that Billboard hit songwriter and recording artist Fawn’s “Wait For The Sun” featuring Debra Wilson. Also joining forces are Joanna Cassidy, Judy Tenuta, Kate Linder, Shanice Wilson and many others in
support of Black Lives Matter.
“After seeing the horrific video footage of Ahmaud Arbery being murdered in cold blood, I couldn’t sleep. It haunted me. Then I heard about Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Elijah
McClain and countless others.” said Billboard Hit Recording Artist Fawn.
Fawn immediately started to reach out to her, friends, acquaintances and colleagues, asking them to join with their voices.

“I couldn’t take it any longer, and I can no longer be silent, so I’m adding my voice against the atrocities, injustices and heinous actions people of color go through daily.” concluded Fawn.
“Wait for The Sun” is a song Fawn wrote about struggling and fighting your way through difficult, dark times. The message of the chorus, “Wait for The Sun” is a reminder to hold on because the sun is going to come out again.” A key unifying line is, “let the love remind you we’re one, and wait for the sun.”
The music video has a handful of soulful celebrities and people uniting for a spiritual journey into cosmic positivity and change. When Fawn saw Debra Wilson’s silent monologue performed to the song, there was one particular moment she felt captured the anguish, pain and frustration of the African American community.
