DJ talks of 'Turn up your music' for Davis movement

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The "Turn up your music" for Jordan Davis movement in late 2012 began in the studio of 93.3 FM in Jacksonville. Radio Personality T-Roy said though music led to the death of Davis, music has the potential to bring people together.

"That's what music is, an emotion. You know, when you're sad, you've got something to listen to. When you're happy, you've got something to listen to," T-Roy said.

A voice on the airwaves for years, T-Roy follows the Jordan Davis case. Michael Dunn is accused of fatally shooting Davis.

"Nobody's music can make you kill them," he said. "When you look at the case, it's just stereotyping. People need to stop stereotyping. Stop judging people because of race, creed, color, music selection or whatever. If he was playing country, would we be talking about this? No."

In late 2012, 93.3 participated in the "Turn your music up" event. It was an event where people were encouraged to turn up their radios for a moment in expression and honor of Jordan Davis.

"The embrace of it was everybody was turning it up for Jordan," T-Roy said. "I just hope justice is served."
