I have met so many incredible, creative and talented people over the past couple of years.
One of these is Christina Yee, who I had the honor of meeting last year at a very special curated event called Hatch.
Christina is a filmmaker, a passionate, warm and lovely human being. I fell in love with the short animated film she screened at the event. The film was 'Miss Todd', and it had won a slew of awards, including a student Academy Award.
The movie was inspired by a real person - specifically, Lilian Todd - the first woman who designed an airplane.
As I was about to release my new album 'Messenger', I was struck by how one of the songs on the record resonated with the film's subject matter - and I approached Christina with an idea to take the footage of the film and make a music video. We agreed that the melancholy, but uplifting nature of the song would give new meaning to the film's story.
The video was edited by Camille Penalver.
