September 14, 2012 | By | No Comments

In JoJo’s new song BIG he talks about how age doesn’t matter if you want to make a difference in peoples lives.

He describes how he has changed the life of his sponsor child Charles from Africa whom he sponsors through his music.

This song is JoJo’s anthem to a generation of young people who want to live for something greater than themselves.

JoJo Rock records these songs to raise money to sponsor kids through Compassion.

Raj, thanks for being patient with JoJo after the 24th take in the middle of a crowded street and the end of a long day of shooting.

Thanks for laughing at the 15th time he says the same joke in a row instead of  starting the next take.

Thanks for making the music video shoots fun for JoJo.

Lyrics

Verse 1

I’m JoJo Rock, I’m 8 years old,
On a mission to stop child poverty cold
Gonna bust my rhymes till my voice goes coarse,
Walking in the footsteps of William Wilberforce
Rhyming to the kids in the western world
They can make a big difference to a boy or girl
Living in poverty wanting to be free
Looking at you and me, now I can see
That we can solve injustice in the world today
Stand up on your feet so we can have our say
Sponsoring a child it’s a powerful way
One child for another we can save the day

Chorus

Ya don’t have to be big, Ya don’t have to be tall
Ya gotta stand up, to change the world
I’m not big, I’m a little bit small
You and I we can change the world

Verse 2

I have a sponsor Charles he lives in Uganda
I consider him my brother even though he lives so far
He’s always in my heart, with God is his lifeguard
I’m doin’ my part, so he can restart
His life, with the money that I currently give
He has a chance to have a life he can truly live
He now can go to school, Life ain’t so cruel
Treated like a rare jewel, taken out of the cess pool
To a life where he can start to dream
bout a different way to live currently unseen
Where day to day life isn’t so extreme
And good food and water’s now part of his daily routine

Chorus

Breakdown

Change the world, change the world
You might be a kid, but you can change the world

Chorus
