WATCH | Jay Pray's Video For "Smile" Might Get Your Tears Flowing

Filed under: 
Music Videos

Connecticut-based solo artist Jay Pray learned how to make music growing up in rural Connecticut, both by playing and by recording in his own makeshift home studio. 

Jay Pray recently released a music video (or short film) for his single “Smile” which immediately struck an emotional chord with us. At first glance, you ask yourself what really is going on up until the very end where you'll probably need a box of kleenex sitting next to you as you might shed some tears. The emotionally gripping video follows a woman as she revisits her memories through projections alongside her husband who suffers from Alzheimer's. The heartbreaking short-film won a slew of awards at various festivals around the USA.

The song’s title and video are stark contrasts of each other which i think is interesting. The director obviously had a different vision of the song when he heard it. But what he was able to do was cement the feeling that love is timeless and that songs, videos and images are able to help recapture feelings that may have been forgotten or lost.

Watch the video above.
