Beau Borreo joins the Occupy Wall Street movement with his new song 'Rise Up'

Friday Harbor’s Borrero visited the Occupy Wall Street movement in September and returned a few weeks later — with a guitar in his hand.

Amidst the sky scrapers and men and women walking  the streets with banners and signs — Borreo  plays his music. He has spend the last few months in New York City making a music video to an original work “Rise Up.”
