Actor (HBO's The Wire and movies like Masterminds & Streets). Author (The Truth You Can't BeTray) .Community Leader.Recording Artist. Tray Chaney has used his various hats that he wears to showcase not just his talent but his commitment to making a difference as well. He brought in 2014 with a new video for his single DEDICATED FATHER from his album THE CURRICULUM.

The song and the video brings back the message that he shared with the world in his song FATHERHOOD which got national attention, even being featured on BET's 106 and Park. With DEDICATED FATHER, however, Tray takes us deeper into his own journey as a father, both to his son and his daughter from his wife's previous relationship. "I couldn't sit back and dwell upon the negative," Chaney says in the song, "so I had to make the situation turn positive. As I took your mom's hand in marriage I made a vow to you don't ever call me a step-parent." What a great message for those who are in relationships with individuals who had children previously. His message to other men in this situation? "Father to a father let's go make a difference."

We hear on the news all the time about individuals who have abandoned their responsibilities as fathers to their children. What Chaney reminds men of is that if you are truly going to call yourself a man, you should be making sure that your offspring are taken care of, regardless of the situation you might find yourself in with their mother.

An interesting element of the video is the group of men of various ages marching by the monument of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. As they walk Chaney raps: "Motivating fathers all over the place.Fist in the air, fatherhood celebrate." It reminds you that just like King had a mission for his life, fathers should be willing to give everything to make sure that things are turned around when it comes to taking care of the youth.

Definitely a message that should motivate you to action, Chaney sums it up in the song with this truth: "Being there for your kid really makes a difference."
