Canadian singer-songwriter, Taylor Abrahamse has teamed up with us at Canadian Beats to unveil the video for his single, “Out Like A Light”, from his 2020 self-titled debut, and was produced by the Grammy-award-winning engineer/producer, Eddie Kramer.
The single is aimed at creating awareness around the chronic, degenerative neurological disorder, Parkinson’s Disease, and raise funds for its research.
The inspirational and warm music video—in partnership with the Michael J Fox Foundation, Parkinson Canada, and the Davis Phinney Foundation—features Abrahamse and his mother attending a local TKO boxing program, an initiative that helps people with Parkinson’s manage their symptoms and improve their mobility.
“I’m glad to be doing something for the Parkinson’s community that has helped my mom out so much, and I’m so proud of her for finding the courage to appear in the video,” Abrahamse says. “We took a tough situation and made lemonade, and I’m glad to see the positive impact the video is already having for people with PD & their families.”
And while Parkinson’s is no cakewalk, the tenacity, determination, and sheer joy of every video participant—who agreed to be filmed at their most vulnerable time—is moving to watch. The music video is touching with its home movie style and offers a snapshot into the lives of people with Parkinson’s – both the trials and their loving, supportive families. Taylor’s mother chimes in near the end of the video with a hopeful message of enduring the disease with help from TKO.
