See The True Me has launched a brand-new music video “Fire in The Rain”,
directed by award-winning local filmmaker Royston Tan. An original song composition by singer-songwriter Don Richmond, with rap lyrics by local rapper ShiGGa Shay, the music video is the first inclusive music video featuring performers
with and without disabilities.
The music video featured a 100-person strong inclusive choir comprising differently abled individuals, their caregivers, teachers
and friends, trained by Irene Jansen, a vocal coach for children with special needs.
Main performers include ShiGGa Shay, Adelyn Koh (visual impairment), Danial
Bawthan a.k.a. Wheelsmith (muscular dystrophy), Joshua Allen German (autism), Sarah Jane (autism), Charlene Wong (deaf), Isabelle Lim (deaf) and her mother Jacqui Lim, and dancers from local deaf hip-hop dance group Redeafination.
