Premiering today on Russell Simmons’ All Def Digital as a part of “The Signal” series, Vancouver street performer/artist David Morin releases the video for his debut single “Life Goes On.” In the clip, David easily draws a crowd, like he's so used to doing in his street performances.
David explains, “The video for ‘Life Goes On’ is really about the boy; a young Cree member navigating his hometown of Kahnawake. I’m actually a quarter Metis, but that’s the subtle link between the two of us," states Morin. "At the start of the video, he’s visibly concerned, but he explores, he dances, he lights fireworks – he sheds the weight of whatever was holding him down by using his imagination and tackling the experiences his immediate world has to offer.” He continues, “That’s what ‘Life Goes On’ is about; yeah, it’s hard sometimes, but you can only count on yourself to discover all the things life has to offer. So, even though the video only shows the contrast between my experience and the boy’s, it’s the universal message of positivity through adversity that I think translates to the viewer, the listener, to anyone.”
Morin’s debut album Every Colour is due out later this year. Purchase “Life Goes On” above.
