For Sounds of Saving’s ongoing series “Song that Found Me at the Right Time,” Black Belt Eagle Scout appeared to cover Grouper’s “Heavy Water / I’d Rather Be Sleeping” The series has also featured Sharon Van Etten and Madison McFerrin. Black Belt Eagle Scout’s performance is in collaboration with the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
Black Belt Eagle Scout talks about her experience going to therapy during the video, saying “[i]t’s something that’s helped me tremendously in my life.” Black Belt Eagle Scout also added:
Sharing a message of mental health support and suicide prevention saves lives. The suicide rate within Native / Indigenous communities is high and so it is very important to be able to speak out specifically for my community. There have been many times in my life where I needed that ray of sun coming out over the mountains on a stormy day. Luckily I have been blessed with support systems that have kept me alive and I have seen firsthand just how important these are. I want to be able to spread this awareness so that more people can see that ray of sun like I did.
The cover starts around the 5:51 minute mark, watch below.
