Laura Marano just released a beautiful music video for her single ‘Something to Believe in’. The video incorporates sign language professionals who translate the song as Laura sings in a beautiful dress.
‘Something to Believe in’ is Special to Laura
The song talks about finding that special person who helps you find the light when you’re in a dark place. Laura wanted to send a message that the universal language of love is music, and her message didn’t go unnoticed. “I wrote this song a few years ago, but it was this year that made me want to release it. I resonated with this song in a different, but very real way during the past few months. It constantly felt like every day brought a new level of darkness and despair,” Laura told Hollywood Life.
She continued, “The bright spots were the people in my life, making me remember and feel grateful for the beautiful light in my life. When I released this song (the same time I put out my You EP), it felt like my fans really resonated with it. I knew I wanted my fans to help me pick which song to do my first You EP music video for. This song was definitely the favorite. I wanted to go full out with the dark and light metaphor. Izak Rappaport (the music video director) constructed this beautiful aesthetic story playing with light throughout the video.”
Her Sister Inspired Her
Laura’s sister and fellow singer and actress Vanessa Marano, who learned ASL during her time in the tv show Switched at Birth, inspired her to incorporate ASL in the music video, “Vanessa knew the language from her time on the series, and during one of the shows in my virtual You Tour, I actually got Vanessa and her costars Katie Leclerc and Ryan Lane to sing the chorus of ‘Something to Believe In,’” she explained. “It was so incredibly beautiful that I knew I wanted ASL to be a part of the official music video. So, the wonderful Ryan and Stephanie Nogueras helped translate the song into ASL and starred in the video with me. It was such a beautiful process collaborating with them and our amazing interpreter Ashley Change (and Vanessa!!!). The video is more special to me because of it.”
