VIDEO: LGBT & Billboard Recording Artist And Youtube Video Sensation Matt Zarley Releases 'Change Begins with Me'
Billboard recording artist, Broadway veteran and People Magazine "Hottest Bachelor" Matt Zarley has received critical acclaim as an LGBT artist for more than a decade. In his latest music video, "Change Begins With Me", Zarley steps away from his popular controversial music videos to inspire with a message of change.
Written by Zarley, Andy Zulla, and Chris Curtis, "Change Begins With Me", is a heartfelt anthem and declaration of self-acceptance, responsibility, and forgiveness. The track, which was produced by Zarley's long time producer and Grammy winner, Zulla, also features the acclaimed Broadway Inspirational Voices.
As a sign of appreciation for their support over the past year, Zarley invited his fans to be a part of the message. Over the past few months, dozens of fans submitted home movies with their messages of change and those are featured in the video's grand finale, which was directed by Robert Bottoms and produced by Area 149.
His previous videos have created quite the stir on various digital outlets. His last video and fourth consecutive Billboard single, "Trust Me," which was released before Obama's endorsement of gay marriage, proved very timely and hugely popular. It received approximately 150,000 views on YouTube in its first month, as well as spending this summer on the Billboard and UK dance charts. In the video, he asks "Is America ready for an openly gay president?" In 2011, Zarley's music video, "WTF," which also received hundreds of thousands of views on YouTubeand other online media outlets, received a similar buzz and spent last summer on the Billboard dance chart.
