Hit singer Andy Grammer says 'unity' more important than any political party

Multi-platinum recording artist Andy Grammer said he believes unity is more important than any political party during an interview that aired on Friday.

“I don’t align with any political party,” told Hill.TV. “I think that unity is really important and that any time you find yourself getting divisive to try and do your best to understand the other side.

“All of these lines that are drawn are kind of made up,” he added.

The pop artist was in the nation’s capitol this week for the Global Down Syndrome Foundation AcceptAbility Gala, which raised more than $350K to support medical research to improve the lives of people with Down Syndrome.

Grammer, who performed at the event, said he see’s music as a way to raise awareness and build support for the Down Syndrome community. 

“I love to be someone that can amplify if that’s possible and music is a really great [way] to do that,” he told Hill.TV.
