Upbeat! Newly released video unites young and old in dance
It’s not a scene you see everyday… a group of youth in an urban park, rolling out the cardboard for some breaking moves. An elderly man watches them with a smile. When they beckon him to join in, he shows that you’re never too old to be moved by music.
Upbeat is the music video to Deane Nesbitt Jr.’s new song of the same name. Released in time for Caribana, the video reflects the festival’s invitation to “jump in and have fun.” See full credits for the video here.
The island-infused single of Upbeat, with its soca calypso influences, is now available for download at CD Baby. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook to updates on Upbeat and other new music releases.
New Release: Change for Chimps (Original Soundtrack Single)
Deane’s music inspired the award-winning short children’s film, Change for Chimps. With the release of this soundtrack single, now you can hear the beats and sounds that conjured up the picture of a young girl’s journey to help chimpanzees live in the jungle, “where they belong.”
Change for Chimps, the soundtrack single, seamlessly blends a gentle prologue with the African-influenced song, Anthem for the Unsung Hero (at Sunset), and the Caribbean-themed, Cocrico. It’s a vibrant new world recording that will uplift and inspire, just like the film.
Change for Chimps is a short film with a big heart. The movie follows 10-year-old Kendra, whose love for chimpanzees takes her on a journey to help chimps live in the jungles with their families, “where they belong.” She raises money, collects signatures and inspires her classmates to get involved, never realizing that it will result in meeting her hero - Dr. Jane Goodall!
