Soul singer INDIA.ARIE wants musicians to become more socially conscious.

The BROWN SKIN singer thinks that musicians naturally become more politically active and outspoken at a time of worldwide change.

She says, "I think that kind of music is always prevalent when there's a great political upheaval. And now there's a great political upheaval happening, people have to open their eyes. Sometimes I think that's why things like that happen to change the consciousness of humanity.

"Like we're not paying attention. How did GEORGE W BUSH win? Why wasn't there a big protest when he won? Everybody knew the numbers were wrong, everybody knew they were lying, but there wasn't a million people protesting in the park then."
