Director's Note

When you combine the musical poetry of composer Lynne Shankel with the actual poetry of the late, great Maya Angelou, and give that song to an actress and vocalist like Kenita Miller — an unprecedented magic fills the space. 

Capturing this song for a music video in a wooded area in New Jersey, where the trees, the birds, Kenita, Lynne and the cinematographer played in tandem felt like being in a place of artistic wonderment.
