Canadian singer-songwriter and producer Francois Klark has just unveiled the visuals for his song Always. Originally released on his debut album LOVE in 2018, the track returns with an artsy music video starring Deaf American Sign Language interpreter Sage Lovell Adams, and with a choreography orchestrated by Matthew Fata.
The stunning piano ballad is currently featured in Netflix’s new dance film Feel The Beat starring Disney’s Descendants’ Sofia Carson. Emmy Award-winning choreographer Mia Michaels (So You Think You Can Dance) discovered the song and decided to utilize it multiple times throughout the movie including the film’s climax, a dance sequence choreographed by Michaels dubbed the ‘petal dance’.
Francois Klark shares: “Since Always was picked up by Resonate Entertainment to appear in their Netflix dance film, ‘Feel The Beat’, I thought that it would be very fitting to collaborate with Matthew on a music video featuring his choreography for this specific song. Making a music video under Covid19 quarantine restrictions not only sparked the idea for the concept of the video, but also directly dictated how we would execute production. I realized how important it is to make all mediums of media accessible to everyone. ‘Feel The Beat’ actress, Shaylee Mansfield’s Instagram movement #InstaCaptioning has inspired me to not only caption my music videos moving forward, but also to release a version of the ‘Always’ music video that includes an American Sign Language interpretation.”
With Always, Francois Klark crosses borders to remind us that music is universal. Check out his official music video & acoustic performance below.
