I Believe in You (1 of 3)

The video that started it all. I spent several years as a filmmaker filming a documentary about 99 young people in a small Welsh town who hanged themselves. It was a heart breaking and traumatic experience to document. It was unimaginable grief and pain for all those involved. I became close friends with many of the victim’s families. I believed and prayed that they would survive. This song was born from that experience.
