Today, GRAMMY®, EMMY®, and Tony® Award-winning actor, singer, director, composer, playwright, and author Billy Porter reveals his official music video for ‘Children‘ exclusively on Facebook HERE.
“The song is about choosing yourself. That choosing one’s personal authenticity is the only way to live – and then using the power of that choice to help others make the same choice.”
“This is my first video with my new team at Island/Republic. I was so happy to bring my good friend and longtime colleague AC Ciulla into the mix to choreograph the big dance moment. I was also excited that we were able to cast our beautiful array of extras with help from the Ali Forney Center, a place that is very special to me and that does such great work.”
“The song has a universal message, but I really wanted the vibe of the visual to be about celebrating our community. This visual moment is about empowerment, about all of us coming together and empowering everybody that’s under the sound of my voice. That was the energy I wanted in this moment. Doing this together. We are all the children. It’s about hope. It’s hopeful. And I know there’s not a lot to be hopeful about so we’re counteracting that on purpose. That’s what this is about.”
‘Children’ is a high-energy dancefloor anthem co-written with GRAMMY® Award-nominated songwriter MNEK [H.E.R., Dua Lipa] and Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall.
