The music video for "Never Let Me Go," performed by Chris Cali and directed by Tommy Khounlivong.
Dear Friends, Family, Fans and everyone who reads this:
As many of you know, music is one of my greatest passions and I've been working for many years to hone and improve my craft at it. Finally I'm at the stage where my material is at a level suitable to put out there for mass consumption and thus I'm being blessed with opportunities. Through a chance meeting I have a talented and passionate director, Tommy Khounlivong, with a crew who is willing to create a video for my song "Never Let Me Go," and he's willing to do it for free. Since music is and always must be a collaborative effort, I feel blessed to have someone offering to help me live my dream of creating images to depict my art, and I want to make it the best possible rendering of my ideas that it can be. Therefore I'm asking all of you to donate anything you can to the project so that I can at least cover some of the basic costs I'm sure we'll encounter while trying to make a professional video on a basically non-existent budget.
This song is essentially about an individual's quest for one of the most basic of human needs, the quest to be loved and cared for, and I intend to depict that quest as I've experienced it in my own life and as I've witnessed in the lives of those around me. In particular, I plan to focus on the struggle that young gay men face in our community to maintain a romantic bond with a partner and the emotional, psychological and physical effects of a "party lifestyle" on those relationships. While the song is an uptempo dance track, I want to use the video to delve into a deeper meaning behind the lyrics, which simply state:
"When you're touching my body, you're really touching my soul. Come and put your arms around me, and never let me go. 'Cause I don't wanna be alone."
Thank you all for reading and I hope my words have convinced you to donate anything you can to the project. I'm aiming for $1200 and I think it's totally doable with the help of all of you!
