I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday season! I sure
did, and though I'm sad it's "over", the joys and memories of holidays
with my family and dear friends stick with me forever. I'm very sentimental, in
case you couldn't tell ; )
Well, several years ago I wrote a song called "Old Folks Song", which
tells a story of two people that met when they were young, fell in love, got married,
and made it last FOREVER. I value commitment and deep, lasting love, so it's a story
that's very dear to my heart. The song is reasonably light-hearted, but the story
is real and very special to me.
I'd like to make a music video for "Old Folks Song" using brief clips
of loved ones in YOUR life! I wrote a blog with more detail, but the gist of it
I hope YOU will
send me a brief clip of a couple (or two) in your life who display sweet, true love.
They can be grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles, good friends, siblings and
their significant others, you and your sweetie pie, or whatever. I would like a
variety of ages and scenarios, so be creative! If you have permission from the lovebirds,
snag a candid clip of them being sweet one afternoon, or simply ask them to smile
and wave if that's more their style. Whatever you need to do - do it : ) Do be creative,
though, as the video won't be as magical as it can be if every clip is the saaaaaaaaame.
You get the point!
