Irish songstress Stephanie Rainey has revealed the brand new video for her current single 100 Like Me, which is available to stream and download now. Stephanie joins Ken in studio on Thursday for some tunes and a chat on KCLR Drive just after 4pm.
The video features thirteen strangers, each with their own story to tell ranging from mental health disorders such as anxiety, bipolar, depression, psychosis and addiction, to suffering from the effects of being a single parent or simply lacking self- confidence.
With an immensely moving message like its predecessor Please Don’t Go, Stephanie says of the passionate and heart-rending new video “I wanted this video, like Please Don’t Go to have some meaning.”
“What I learned from making that first video is that everybody is just looking for someone to relate to. The conversations that were started between people, total strangers, in the comments section under it as well as the thousands of messages I received from people telling me their stories was testament to that.”
“So with 100 Like Me I wanted to open the conversation up again. The concept is very simple, simple shots with illustrations that help to tell some of these incredible stories. I am so grateful to have had an amazing group of people come to London, talk about their experiences and be part of this video. What fascinated me was the realization that these amazing people who appear are no different to anyone else, have struggled so much, and for much of that time, they struggled alone. They were brought to the darkest of places and have fought to overcome it.”
