Folk singer-songwriter, Annie Sumi has released a video for her single, “In Everything” just in time for Earth Day. The single was the lead track on Sumi’s sophomore album, In The Unknown, which was released in October 2017. “Love the Earth, save the Earth” is the underlying message in the video which shares images of earth’s beauty and wonder, as well as encourages us all to respect and care for the water systems, forests and the air we breathe.
“The gifts from the earth are what gives us life and sustains us,” says Sumi “My hope is that we all show the earth the love and deep respect it deserves.”
Weaved into the video’s narrative are cautionary words from two pioneers of the environmental movement, the late U.S. scientist-naturalist Rachel Carson, author of the groundbreaking book Silent Spring, and Canadian icon Dr. David Suzuki, who says the scientific evidence is overwhelming – our planet is under siege.
“David Suzuki’s message has been loud and clear for generations – what we do to our planet we do to ourselves, so let’s take better care of both,” Sumi says. “The reality is, we can’t keep taking, taking, taking from the earth without doing irreparable damage.”
In summary, Annie hopes that everyone soaks in the video’s depiction of the beauty and grace of nature, and use it as inspiration to live their lives in a way that will help ensure clean water, forests and air will be around for future generations.
“Let’s give a big hug to the earth by living our lives in a more sustainable way,” she says.
