Voice for Equality: Rob Thomas
May 16, 2009
Rob Thomas has over 45 million albums as the lead singer of Matchbox Twenty. As a solo artist, he has released two CDs and earned three Grammy Awards. In 2004, the Songwriters Hall of Fame awarded Thomas its first Starlight Awardm, which recognizes young musicians destined for greatness.
In a May 2009 Huffington Post Article, Thomas wrote:
“I'm writing about basic civil rights. We've been here before, fighting for the rights of African Americans or women to vote, or the rights of Jewish Americans to worship as they see fit. And, just as whites fought for African Americans or Christians for Jewish Americans, straight people must stand up and be a voice for gay people…. A marriage is about life. It's about a commitment. And this argument is about allowing people to have the right to make that commitment, even if it doesn't make sense to you. Anything else falls under the category of ‘separate but equal’ and we know how that works out.”
