Sybrina Fulton visited a South Florida radio station on Tuesday to debut her new single, a song about finding hope and strength after dealing with gun violence.
Fulton teamed up with Gospel hip-hop artist T-DOGG to produce the single "Joy Comes in the Morning," which praises God and finding peace within religion after hardships.
"No matter what you do always know God is in control. You must always stay encouraged and hold your head high," Fulton says at the end of the song. "I am glad to know my angel Trayvon is watching over me and a piece of my heart is in heaven."
Fulton doesn't sing. She speaks before and after the song.
Fulton said in her interview with HOT 105 that although she was shocked that George Zimmerman —the man who killed her 17-year-old son Trayvon Martin — was found not guilty in his death, she needs to move on instead of being mad or angry, and she hopes her single will inspire similar sentiments for other people who've lost loved ones from "senseless gun violence."
T-DOGG said he was inspired to write the lyrics for "Joy Comes in the Morning" because he felt Fulton's pain after watching her do several TV interviews after Martin's death.
"I went back and watched her segments on TV and said 'I'm going to step outside of myself and see what she would be feeling,'" the South Florida native said.
Proceeds from the single will go toward making more copies of the song, which will be handed out at various community events.
