Soul Khan – Shine [Video]

Posted on March 27, 2016 by


“This video came together when my friend and brilliant comic, Jermaine Fowler, asked to direct a video for me. Jermaine pitched the idea of a terrible motivational speaker to contrast the earnest message of the song. ‘Shine’ is about meaningful acceptance of who you are, flaws and all, without deflection or disregard for our differences, not hollow self-help soundbytes. Making the video was as much fun as the song was difficult to write. I was lucky to be able to involve my talented friends and even my sister, which enabled us to really embed ourselves in the story. I also am proud to have replicated a scene from ‘Beat It’ with staplers.”
