Spike Lee was first impressed by Andra Day when he heard her sing at the “What Happened Miss Simone?" tribute at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. This stunning video has Andra singing about her journey for a stronger spiritual connection and finding love while all eyes are on her; the artists’ great dilemma.
Spike Lee does a wonderful job of bringing this song to life he is definitely on his "A" game. In the press release for the video Day states, "The box represents my sanctuary. When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I do is pray, confess and be still, so that box [is] that space where all of my creativity comes to me." She goes on to say, "...simplicity is a very powerful thing. You don't need much to convey a message."
In this video Andra Day and director Spike Lee definitely convey their message well. "Forever Mine" is on her debut album Cheers to the Fall which will be released August 28th. Until then enjoy the video:
