Immigration policy and border control are two of the most pressing matters in the US right now, and many artists address these issues in their music, films, and books. Calvin Harris, Benny Blanco, and Miguel are the latest to do so, with their powerful video for “I Found You.”
This uplifting song of hope and wonder already got a music video two months ago, but the second one is much more profound and meaningful than the first. It tells the story of Nilda – a Honduran woman who made her way to the US with her son, fleeing the violence in her home country.
Benny Blanco already filmed one video for “I Found You”, where he was seen dancing with his friends and mother, but he felt this song deserved more and used it to send a powerful message by sharing Nilda’s story with the world.
“It was originally intended to be for my single “I Found You”, but we quickly realized that this was far too powerful and important to be just another video… This was bigger than us or any song we were making,” wrote Blanco on Instagram.
