Corey Harper Unveils Emotional "Keeping Me Alive"
"I really wanted to give an authentic visual look into the story the song was written about. As years went by, I was always compelled by the music that reminded me of her, and the feeling I would get when her favorite song came on. So I wanted to write something of my own that I could always sing when I missed her, or when I was dealing with some hard times."
Corey Harper has released his emotionally invested visual element for single "Keeping Me Alive" today. Encouragement at it's finest, Harper sings in the track that was inspired by an unfortunate incident. His cousin passed away in an accident when he was just in middle school, flipping his world upside down and forcing him to deal with very serious emotions. But what better way to direct the energy than in his art? He explains that its a pivotal part of his production.
"The lyrics I wrote in the song helped me in a lot of ways. I think everyone goes through times where they need to be vulnerable and express the feelings they have inside them. This song serves as a blueprint for me to get in touch with those emotions, and a pathway to find healing through it."
