After 20 solid years of promoting music videos, many of our videos have skyrocketed to the top. Today, we present you with one of our most-watched videos on our Youtube channel. Amazing singer-songwriter Brooke Fraser makes another addition to our series with “Shadowfeet” which was released in May of 2008 and has gained over 56K views to date.
Christian Contemporary music has had a lot of big names over the years, but no one seems to shine brighter than New Zealand starlet Brooke Fraser. Starting her career at the young age of 18, Fraser has consistently made it to impressive positions on the charts with her American debut Albertine making it to the #90 on the Billboard 200. Her work has been universally admired by Christian and secular publications alike, with one of them saying that her work “grabs hold of all of the right nerves and doesn’t let go.” Aside from solo work, Fraser has also found critical acclaim working with Christian supergroup Hillsong Worship in the past few years
“Shadowfeet” is a video that works to unite everyone that watches it in the sense of community and belonging. It sets itself in a fast-paced and burgeoning city where Fraser is found taking photos of the incoming traffic and city life. She takes a break from her photography and faces the camera to make a direct testimonial to the audience, singing her song with every ounce of poise and energy that she has. Soon after, we see different people taking Fraser’s place. A whole spectrum of unique individuals is placed in front of the camera, singing Fraser’s song with just as much emotion as she had. Some of them are happy while others look to be a bit sadder. Regardless, they are all feeling something through “Shadowfeet” and are used to prove the point that society’s different factions aren’t so different from each other. We all feel, and that’s an amazing unifier.
