A new single, titled “Justice for All”, featuring former President Donald Trump with the J6 Prison Choir, reached the number one spot on iTunes over the weekend.
The J6 Prison Choir is made up of a group of about twenty men who were convicted for their part in entering the US Capitol on January 6th, 2021.
The project was inspired by their ongoing tradition of singing the national anthem every night at 9:00pm.
The song features their own version of “The Star-Spangled Banner”, which was recorded over a phone from the Washington D.C. jail where they currently reside.
The track interpolates Trump reciting the Pledge of Allegiance throughout the J6 Choir’s song. It finishes with the inmates chanting, “USA!”
Trump recorded the Pledge of Allegiance at Mar-a-Lago weeks ago specifically for the track after the J6 Choir requested his assistance. Trump, who often speaks about the “injustice” being done to some of those incarcerated, agreed to support their effort.
Just before announcing his reelection campaign, Trump said he would “very, very seriously” consider full pardons for those convicted of breaching the Capitol. As of early February, about 500 people plead guilty to some sort of involvement on that day.
Trump also features in the music video for the song, which consists of patriotic footage of him during his presidency and clips from the events on January 6th, including police firing tear gas into the crowd of protesters.
The video has been viewed over 500,000 times on YouTube.
Funds from the song, which is on sale for $1.29 on Apple Music and Spotify, will go toward legal aid and benefit the families of those imprisoned.
According to Forbes, profits will go to an LLC run by conservative commentator Ed Henry, who will then distribute them. He will apparently screen recipients so proceeds do not benefit those who assaulted police officers.
