Billboard-charting artist, Andy Mineo, has released a visual for his single titled “Hear My Heart,” during International Week of the Deaf 2016 to raise awareness for IWD2016. Mineo caters to the deaf community with this video, which serves as a personal tribute to his deaf sister, Grace. International Week of the Deaf is a week recognized globally the last week of September.
“It’s just an honest record of me essentially apologizing to her for having never learned sign language growing up,” he explains openly during an interview with hip-hop culture icon and veteran Sway Calloway of Sirius XM’s Sway In The Morning. “We’re putting together a music video,” he continues, “I want to see sounds. So we’re really working on something creative and special for her because I really just want her to know that I love her and I’m sorry.”
Mineo collaborated with Alex Medina and director Kyle Dettman to create an innovative visual that is accessible to the Deaf and hard of hearing community. In the video, Andy Mineo signs his lyrical performance and sounds are brought to life through visually interesting 3D objects.
Andy Mineo recently announced he will kick off the Friends & Family Tour with special guest Social Club Misfits in Atlanta on October 27. For more information on Andy Mineo, visit AndyMineo.com and @andymineo on Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
