They want to be diverse but they just don’t know anyone... So we decided to fix the doorbell. We now have the Composers Diversity Collective website."

In his acceptance speech for writing music to Surviving R. Kelly, Nathan Matthew David said, "We need more voices of color, not just in front of the camera, but behind the camera as well.” He goes on to dedicate the award to his parents who came to the U.S. from the Philippines “with nothing in their pockets but dreams.”
