A beautiful song went unnoticed for half a year until a second release followed by top 100 charts after Christina Aguilera throw in her delicate vocals into the mix. This song brings such powerful emotion about humility, sadness and regret.
Ian Axel & Chad Vaccarino wrote this song when both members were experiencing individual heartbreak. Must be hard to carry a scar this deep whenever this song is performed.
To summarize this hauntingly beautiful song
“When you have exhausted all you have for someone and the outcome still doesn’t favor you. Accept it and give up even when love remains.”
What a beautiful video to stumble upon on a Sunday morning. Danny, a homeless man just wandered around and saw Carlos Whittaker shooting a home video and decided to kneel down and join him. Danny has got this amazing Rastafarian style vocal that amazingly awed me.
Full song – God of Second Chances with Danny
Carlos Whittaker tells the story about the homeless man.
In Leaderonomics, it’s mandatory to be an actor from time to time. (check out the previous video I did with dmingthing) This particular video however put me in the spotlight, a soft spotlight too. Not sure if my colleagues do really feel this way about me or it’s just for acting’s sake. But it’s okay, I love you all!
If you didn’t already know. I work at Leaderonomics. It’s simply one of the best places to work at in Malaysia because we get to do fun videos for My Star Job pull out every fortnight in The Star Newspaper!
I know lots of you are fans of Jayesslee but unfortunately I’m not one. I’ve heard one of their earlier covers cause my colleague showed them to me but they didn’t quite catch my attention all that much… yet.
So last week I was fortunate enough to be their official videographer during their tour in Malaysia. I’ve had lots of experience with big stars because of the networks and the nature of my job. Organized a few rave parties and worked in a number of gigs when I was into events. So to me, Jayesslee was just another pair of stars.
You can tell I wasn’t all that excited about seeing them. I knew nothing about their background or names or how to differentiate the twins. My friends were more excited than I am. But this all changed as I actually get to know them better in person and hear them live. They are not just another pair of pretty face trying to make a music career.
They are both really down to earth and talented, friendly and most importantly – dedicated. These girls really work hard. They would go over and over a song just to make sure it sounded right during performance.
I salute their spirit and faith. Looking forward to your new album Jayesslee!
