Inspired by an idea given to her from Charles Randolph-Wright, the director of Motown The Musical, Saycon brought on multi-media production artist, Mila Slowmo, who helped her create a video that was simple, emotional, and honest. Be Here also features a cameo performance from indie artist, Elijah Bland as well.
"Be Here means a lot to me so I wanted a music video that would demonstrate the pure emotion of the song," says Saycon. "My feelings are real. I've never been so emotionally bare on camera."
We would love for you to share the video with your followers through the platform that your outlet provides. Saycon is also available for interview to discuss her inspiration behind the song and the video, as well as her upcoming role in Holler If Ya Hear Me.
Be Here is available for download on iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby, and other digital retailers. For more info, visit www.SayconSengbloh.com
