East London singer/songwriter ‘Crystal King UK’ has released a new music video for her heartfelt and self-penned song “You Deserve” on Easter Sunday 27th March 2016.
‘You Deserve” is a charity song written by ‘Crystal King UK’ and dedicated to her country of origin, Dominica, after the Caribbean island was hit by Tropical Storm Erika of August 2015; which seemingly went unnoticed by the rest of the world and the world media.
Within the piece, King characterises Dominica as a young child in need of love and repair with lyrics like: “…You Deserve more than you know… pretty girl so beautiful… I will give all that I can, to preserve all the beauty you hold within your hands…”
Dean Paretta of ‘Music Matters’ wrote of the piece: “You Deserve’ undeniably exhibits King’s most poignant and mature declaration as a songwriter, whilst seemingly underscoring an elegantly trademark vocal performance devoid of grandstanding”
Crystal King UK co-directed and filmed a music video for “You Deserve” on January 9 in London, shot by female Producer Samantha Soso of Supastarz TV.
The video features a cameo from X-Factor favourite Robert Allen aka Shylo Soulstar and the voices and faces of local children – including her young sister, cousin and Godson – whom also accompanied King in the studio to sing parts of the chorus of “You Deserve”. The video also features “Miss Deaf UK” doing sign language and Instagram fitness model Bianca Maria.
Proceeds from digital sales of the original version of “You Deserve” (due for official release via i-Tunes in April 2016 – will go to registered charity ‘Dominica National Development and Disaster Fund’ (DNDDF) – www.dnddf.com
