My good freind, Erik Proulx, is on a mission to tell stories on film about people and places coming back from the brink. His last documentary, Lemonade Movie, was not only powerful in it’s message, but gorgeous to watch.
He’s been working on a newer project for a while now called Lemonade: Detroit about how a city decimated by the last few years is being rebuilt from the ground up by artists, entrepreneurs and individuals who believe in the power of single voices working in harmony to do the impossible.
One of those voices was National Poetry Slam Champion and singer/songwriter David Blair. Erik recently shot footage of Blair setting Emily Dickinson to a cappella music at Detroit’s Institute of Arts.
The footage was to be used in Lemonade:Detroit, but Erik posted it on Monday…after learning of Blair’s tragic passing over the weekend. It blew me away. It took me back to what matters. So, I had to share it with you.
Watch Blair’s face as he sings. This is a man doing what he was here to do.
Such an incredible gift, followed by the realization that Blair is no longer here to share even more.
Curious, when you watched and listened, how’d it make you feel?
