Lightness

Just because TNH mentioned it, because it’s lovely, and because I had to take a brief break.

    Lovely indeed.

    Wow!
    That video had everything – the homeless, the disabled, people devastated by storms, inter-racial couples.
    I especially liked the man with the prosthetic leg.
    Political campaigns like to use a good video as the backdrop for their ads or conventions.
    I would really love to see this video used at the Democratic convention.
    I think that it would win hearts and explode conservative heads as a bonus.

    Oh, and I was taking a quick break from preparing for weekend company. This break left me smiling and in tears at the same time!

    Very beautiful.

    Yes, very beautiful and inspiring. Now I have a new (to me) singer to listen to. Thank you, PZ.

    (And, Gregory, thanks for the link to the lyrics.)

    Lovely. I particularly liked the amputee break dancing.

    YOB - Ye Olde Blacksmith

    First time through, I couldn’t make out the music or words very well but the imagery and choreography made me tear up a little bit.

    (Thanks, Gregory, for linky)

    Al Dente: Did you see the “Hand in Hand” ballet dance out of China? Lovely and unique choreography designed around the dancer’s missing limbs.

    Extra points for managing to make the irregular 7/4 time signature sound not at all contrived.

    Stunning on so very many levels.

    And she has an absolutely gorgeous voice, i’ll definitely be trying to listen to more of her stuff.

    Thanks PZ

    Leftwingfox,
    I watched your video and teared up again!
    How beautiful!

    I love, love, love Vienna Teng.

    M can help you with that.

    How have I not heard her music before? (And I’m with David Hart on appreciating effective use of 7/4.)

    What a lovely song, a great video and some talented people.

    I love Vienna Teng.
    And look how easy it is to have a diverse set of people in a video. No more excuses for anybody.

    One word. Beautiful. Watched this at least a dozen times and still get something in my eye.

    M can help you with that.

    A line from the song:

    Let your faith die; bring your wonder.

    Sounds like it could be the motto of FtB.

    Charles Sullivan

    Yes, ‘M can help…’ that line jumped out at me too.

    Very nice, thanks for the link. I’d never heard her before, but her work is lovely, I just bought her album.
