Continuing development of my 1st music video, I’d like to thank you guys for submitting your concepts this past week. They were anonymous so I have no idea who suggested what, but there were some good ones in there! Thanks! But to tell you the truth, I had a breakthrough this past week when I realized that my music debut would be much easier and harder hitting (no pun intended) if I actually stood for something as an artist. I’ve decided to do everything I can to end domestic violence.

Half of the proceeds from my first album will either go to NewBeginnings.org or another non-profit company that helps women and their children get away from unhealthy situations.

My first video will center around domestic violence awareness. The Atlanta Music & Video Collaborative  and I have chosen the song “Crisis Island” for our first music video. It’s a very real song to me and was inspired by a relationship that should have ended much soon (or not began at all) . For the video, we’ve chosen to make it about a couple that – for the most part – have a great relationship. The guy is charismatic and his girlfriend’s family loves him. Unfortunately, echoing real life, the female character stuffs the fact that her boyfriend can be, at times, physically abusive. Often, women tend to stuff or deny there is a problem, blame themselves for an abuser’s behavior, and do whatever it takes to “protect” their man. Other women just can’t get away by themselves, even though they’ve chosen to.

I’d like to make this video as impacting as possible. If you have any feedback or a personal story you would like to share to aid to the realism of the video, feel free to contact me.  I will hold any specific information in confidence.
