A new song released by the January 6th Prisoner choir on March 4, a song which featured former President Trump, just topped iTunes’ charts and became the Number 1 song in the country on Saturday of this past weekend.
The single, “Justice for All,” consists of the January 6th prisoner choir singing “The Star Spangled Banner” behind bars. Interspersed with that powerful rendition of the National Anthem is audio of Trump reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, along with chants of “USA! USA!”

Variety, trying to throw some cold water on the big news that the song is reaching the number one spot on Apple Music’s iTunes, said:
The song’s dominance on the iTunes sales chart does not necessarily augur for it becoming a hit on the Hot 100 or any streaming chart, since paid downloads now represent a minuscule fraction of the music market. Politically based songs often register high No. 1 on iTunes, where it usually takes only a few thousand sales a day to command the chart. Kid Rock’s Biden-bashing “We the People” went to No. 1 on iTunes in early 2022, as did, from the other end of the political spectrum, YG’s “FDT (Fuck Donald Trump)” in 2020.
The January 6th Prisoner’s Choir is composed of patriots locked up for their role in the mostly peaceful January 6th protest. Their website describes the choir by saying:
J6 Prison Choir consists of individuals who have been incarcerated as a result of their involvement in the January 6, 2021 protest for election integrity after President Donald J. Trump stated “I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard”. The J6PC continues to make their voices heard through the power of music and sings “The Star Spangled Banner” every evening before bed.
The Daily Caller, reporting on Trump’s involvement in the hit song, noted, “The third-time presidential candidate’s 2024 campaign was not motivation for his involvement in this production, advisers claim. Trump has consistently expressed his support for those imprisoned, promising full pardons if he wins re-election and financially supporting some Jan. 6 defendants.”
The Hill reported that Trump has been financially supporting some of them as well, saying, “During an interview with conservative radio host Wendy Bell earlier this month, Trump said he was “financially supporting” some of the defendants and that he would consider “very strongly and very favorably” pardoning the defendants if he wins a second term in 2024.”
Newsmax added more details on the song as well, noting who was involved and that the profits from it would help pay for the legal bills of the January 6th political prisoners, saying:
One source told Forbes that money raised from the song, which is on sale for $1.29 on iTunes, will go to the families of imprisoned Jan. 6 defendants.
The tune was recorded several weeks ago at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence in South Florida, the source further claimed, with the Jan. 6 defendant portion reportedly recorded through a jailhouse phone.
Conservative commentator Ed Henry and Trump-era White House official Kash Patel are reportedly involved in the project. The funds are slated to go into a group run by Henry.
