This Is What I Know, I Remember Nicole
American Idol, Hollie Cavanagh and Melodye Perry (daughter of music legend Edna Wright and niece of music legend Darlene Love, for music aficionados) bring a resonating voice to the voiceless.
#IRememberNicole is a metaphor for the highly publicized domestic violence story of Nicole Brown Simpson. June 12, 2019 marks the 25th Anniversary of her murder.
Let us never forget the victims. #NoMoreNicoles
"There are no words to express what I am feeling right now. I Remember Nicole is absolutely beautiful, breathtaking and absolutely mind-blowing! It brought tears to my eyes, my sister Denise, our Mother, and I know to Nicole in Heaven.” - - Tanya Brown (Nicole Brown Simpson's sister)
The driving force behind I Remember Nicole:
Directors/Co-Songwriters: Two-Time Emmy Award Winner Renee Sotile & Mary Jo Godges:
On October 3, 1995, OJ Simpson was acquitted of murder charges for the deaths, of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman. The Brown-Simpson marriage was alleged to have been rife with domestic violence.
Working as a video-journalist, Renee covered the "Trial of the Century" for more than 100 days. Renee never forgot the impact Nicole Brown Simpson's death made on her. Imprinted in her mind are the shocked and heartbreaking expressions on the faces of Nicole's family. She and Mary Jo want the world to remember Nicole and all women who suffered and continue to suffer from domestic abuse.
