Last Thursday, Jason Crabb had his music video shoot for "Love Is Stronger" around the Birmingham area. The music video shoot caught the attention of a number of local news outlets. The video involved 30-year-old Ashley DeRamus who founded an organization for and dedicated to the education, advancement and quality lifestyle of children and adults with Down syndrome. The video will also be used by her foundation to promote the awareness of Down syndrome. Many local kids with Down syndrome were also used in the video.
The full video, according to reports, will tell the story of a father leaving his daughter who has Down syndrome (played by DeRamus) to go off to war. The father is severely wounded, but fights to recover so he can return home to his daughter.
I think this is a great take on this song. Music videos can sometimes take a song in a different direction than you might think, but I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product here. It's awesome how Jason is involving the Down syndrome community with not only the video shoot, but also allowing them to use it for their organization.
