Wrabel Drops New Music Video for “the village” featuring UNITY
Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Stephen Wrabel, aka Wrabel has dropped a new music video for “the village”.
This time, he teamed up with the UK dance group UNITY, who reached the Semi-Finals of Series 16 of Britain's Got Talent on the video.
On the clip, the group members each spoke how society treated them.
UNITY first performed with “the village” at Britain's Got Talent back in May.
The song was released in 2017. Also, the track is featured on Wrabel' 2019 live album “One Nite Only”.
It was written by Stephen Wrabel and Drew Pearson.
Wrabel told Billboard about the song in 2017, “This song is the most important thing to me that I have ever done and probably will ever do. It's the closest thing to my heart. I came out as gay around 23 into a church in Los Angeles that told me I could and should change; that I was unnatural and wrong. I hope this reaches anyone in need of it and makes them feel like they're not alone.”
- Wrabel shared on social media, “i can't put into words how beautiful UNITY's performance was on Britain's Got Talent. the past few days i have been flooded with so many messages gushing over your performance. one of the most beautiful and powerful things i've ever seen and i am truly just so honored that you did it to 'the village'. this song came out in 2017 and continues to live its life in such an incredible way. the intention behind it was simple, it was written for two very special trans people so they could have it and hopefully feel less alone in this world. like a little safe space in a pair of headphones away from hate and judgement. to see it still out in the world and still reaching people years and years later absolutely floors me. such a special day writing it with Drew Pearson and @andrewjacksoninsta i will never forget. and then the video by Dano Cerny with August Aiden Black i still can't watch without crying. UNITY my whole heart to you all <3. to all of the colorful birds out there, there's nothing wrong with you. it's true, it's true.
