Sarantos releases a brand new music video for “A Child’s Mind” remembering the innocent childhood of an immigrant boy. [PURCHASE ON iTUNES]
Immigrants routinely flocked from Europe to America in the 1950s-70s in search of a better life. America was the land of opportunity and they pursued their dreams! Their story was a common one. Immigrants would seek shelter here and work hard, focus on their family and ultimately try to give their children a better life. Routinely, there was obvious discrimination and bias. While learning a new language was difficult, most managed to adapt to the United States culture and fit in, eventually learning the customs and language of their newly adopted home.
Even today, there are still many immigrants from all over the world such as Mexico, Europe and Asia who long to make the United States their new home. Sarantos new music video portrays the tale of an immigrant mom and son who travelled to the US and the son ultimately became successful and a doctor. Reminiscing about his homeland & mother and remembering the innocence of childhood years along with old friends makes for quite a compelling music video. The song fits perfectly and the story touches on many emotions to reveal yet again that Sarantos is not interested in making music videos without substance.
“This music video is about immigrants and the challenges they encounter every day,” says Sarantos. “Can you imagine leaving the comforts of your homeland and moving by yourself or with a spouse or child to go to a foreign land, not knowing the language and not having any money in your pockets? I can’t even imagine something that drastic! My parents were both immigrants and I recall the bias against them. They worked hard, bothered no one and only cared about helping me live a better life. Is there a cause more just or noble? America is still the land of opportunity. I have such a profound level of respect and admiration for any and all immigrants who legally try to make America their adopted home!”
33% of any music-related sales profits from this song are going straight to Feed My Starving Children.
Feed My Starving Children is a non-profit organization committed to feeding God’s children hungry in body and spirit. The approach is simple: children and adults hand-pack meals specifically formulated for malnourished children, and they ship these meals to nearly 70 countries around the world. Sarantos even participated in one of these packing sessions on a cold Chicago night last month!
Most people remember their childhood fondly. It is a simple time in one’s life when there are no limits. Imagine and remember a time when the days were care-free. The nights were full of stars and mystery. One’s imagination ran wild at the slightest provocation. Childhood is a time usually spent growing up while learning within the comfort of one’s family. However, not everyone has that chance. Some children grow up in abusive environments. Some children grow up without enough food and are often hungry or malnourished. That is an injustice.
