Review: "Sacrifice" - Maia Moham

Sacrifice by Maia Moham

It’s no secret that the world we live in is a scary place. The lives of innocents mean nothing to those who title themselves as leaders of a country. There’s tragedy after tragedy and hardly a voice for the voiceless. Maia Moham released her new song “Sacrifice” about the truth of who benefits from War. War songs have been around for a long time. This style of writing can be impactful by expressing the emotional impact of war in various ways. Some of us are incredibly informed on political events and some of us aren’t.

Maia shared that she isn’t the type to write love songs but she writes the truth. She went on to say the world needs to hear the truth, especially now. She has used her voice to share an honest message that people need to hear. Songs such as “Sacrifice” play a significant role in educating us in understanding the world. Maia writes “what’s it take to build paradise, there’s always a sacrifice.” She emphasizes the costs we have to pay when our governments crave power. They justify death and destruction because it gives them control while we get pain.

Maia Moham is a Persian-American Singer-Songwriter. Her music has been featured in the NIKE documentary “Lucas” as well as a campaign for the Fast and the Furious franchise. Maia uses her voice to speak on social injustice and empower us to do what we can to help those in need. With this song, Maia is also sharing links to donate to the International Rescue Committee. By donating you can help the organization provide resources to war torn communities. I strongly admire her for taking her talent and platform to do something good. Check out all the links down below and donate to the International Rescue Committee if you are able.
