Two-time Grammy nominee Calvin Richardson is doing something a little different with his first single “You’re So Amazing,” by dedicating the video to the service men and women of the U.S. military, recognizing their bravery in protecting our freedom and way of life.
“The personal sacrifices our military personnel make to protect our way of life truly makes each of them American Heroes – they truly are America’s Most Wanted” states Richardson upon the launch of the clip. “I was proud to portray a man in a uniform in the video, I have a great deal of respect for our soldiers.”
In the Dustin Pegg directed video, Richardson portrays a man who returns home from deployment in the Army in search of the love he left behind.
“You’re So Amazing” is the lead single from Calvin Richardson’s 5th studio album entitled America’s Most Wanted (NuMo Records/Shanachie Entertainment) due in-stores August 31st.
Richardson hopes to carry the momentum of his composition of “There Goes My Baby,” sang by Charlie Wilson, which he received an ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Award for writing and publishing the song which topped the R&B/Hip-Hop Music Charts in 2009.
Calvin Richardson also scored two Grammy nominations for his last album, Facts Of Life, his heartfelt tribute to one of soul music’s greatest creators, Bobby Womack.
