Watch the video below or at Singer-Songwriter Jen Foster gave her song and her time to be the soundtrack to the campaign and the music behind the story of two women who fall in love and get married. Foster appears in the video as the “Wedding Singer.”
The song has been a favorite within the lesbian community for over a decade and is regularly used in lesbian commitment ceremonies.
A new version of the track has been produced and scored by Eve Nelson who designed an incredible fusion of contemporary orchestra and dance to compliment the video storyboard.
The video opens up to a beautiful wedding, where viewers witness a celebration of love between family, friends, and guests. The viewers are taken on a journey through exquisite flashbacks of the bride and her best friend in their youth. We witness an underlying tension during the present day wedding before being presented with an endearing plot twist. The twist has been designed to help transmit a hopeful message of love and understanding to a mainstream audience, thinking of those with opinions somewhere near neutral on gay marriage.
Iconic lesbian film director Nicole Conn, the director behind the music video PSA said "The pinnacle of love is the joining of two souls to become one and the most sacred act to commemorate this is Marriage. When I was approached to come up with a concept for the SHE4ME supporting Marriage Equality, I was thrilled. My entire career has been devoted to creating books and films that provoke the viewer to experience the spectrum of emotions involved with love and passion and our goal here was to produce something that could communicate our message to a mass audience."
SHE4ME is all about love. About how underneath it all, Love is Love and, to coin a lyric from the song SHE “there is nothing to be afraid of”. This video shows a face that people need to see, the face of unconditional love. With the help of YouTube and hundreds of volunteers, partner organisations, SHE4ME is expected to reach millions of people all around the globe, especially in places where LGBT people are not accepted.
Wedding scenes were filmed at the iconic Andaz West Hollywood, which has recently served as location for many high profile same-sex weddings.
Marriage Equality USA (MEUSA), the largest grassroots Marriage Equality organisation in the United States, partnered with Fosterchild Records and Melke Pty Ltd to produce this social project.
