In today’s world, where divisions and conflicts are often highlighted in the media, it’s important to have events that bring people together in a spirit of love and unity. The Love+Unity Music Festival, founded by recording Artist Carl Brister, in West Orange, New Jersey, whose latest single “Let’s Wait Awhile”, covers the Janet Jackson classic. It is an annual community festival that aims to inspire love and unity, diversity and inclusion through great musical performances from all genres. We sat down with Carl to learn more about the festival and what inspired him to start it.
In 2016, Carl Brister founded The Love+Unity Music Festival in West Orange, New Jersey, in response to police brutality, racial injustice, and hate crimes throughout the nation.

Carl Brister, the festival’s founder, was inspired to start the festival as a new dad. He became concerned about what kind of world his two sons would have to face. He decided to be proactive and start trying to make a difference in his own community so they would not become a casualty of someone’s hatred by working to create a culture of love.

It’s about bringing people together to celebrate diversity and promote a message of inclusion.
