Grad Student Cecil Blutcher Releases ‘Good Morning Amen’ Music Video

From THON, to SOMA Arts Crawl, to right outside of of DP Dough, Cecil Blutcher’s been everywhere. You’d be hard-pressed to find a Penn State venue where the aspiring musician hasn’t spit his flow.

Currently enrolled in Penn State’s Graduate Actor Training Program, Blutcher thrives in live performance. His sound– a distinct blend of rap, neo-soul, and pop– translates best this way. The music video for his first single “I’m Fine” featured a Penn State backdrop, a concept he says Onward State inspired him to continue.

When OS said that Happy Valley is my stage, I had never thought of it that way before. I figured I would combine that with my precious experiences as a campus tour guide for the ‘Good Morning Amen’ video,” Blutcher said.

In his sophomore music video effort, he drops bars with a conscience in front of Penn State landmarks like Old Main, Eastview Terrace, and DP Dough. His lyrics assert he’s not another Chris Brown or Chance, but we’ll let you decide.

It’s Onward State’s pleasure to premier the music video for “Good Morning Amen,” Cecil Blutcher’s highly anticipated follow-up to “I’m Fine.”

Blutcher will headline his own free concert on Friday, Dec. 4 in room 119 of Penn State’s Theatre Building. Watch out for #HigherEd, his LP set to release in Spring 2016. For more information, check out his website.
