Shaya – Searchin’ – 2019
Feel My Love – Official Music Video. Premiered on 11 Jun 2019
Shaya developed the album Stronger, being signed to Spider-Music. Spider-music did not live up to the contract signed with Shaya, why Shaya did not want to release to album together with Spider-music and terminated the contract.
Spider-music released the album anyway, because the actual recordings belongs to them. Shaya will re-master the album and release again in the future. Feel free to listen to the album currently released at Youtube.
Shaya wrote I’m taking over together with Danish Christoffer Stjerne and Greek Theodore Papantonis during summer 2016, but first after visiting the SOS International Childrens Village Vari in Athens, the music really came to live together with a choir from the village, and the cooperation between Shaya and the kids.
The hope is that the video will inspire children and adults around the world, to build more self-confidence and feel more responsibility by taking over the control of the personal life, and that way staying happier, stronger and healthy.
