Pop singer-songwriter Dan Bremnes partnered with non-profit Achilles International for a new music video for his current Top 15 hit, "Up Again." The inspiring clip tells the real-life story of 15-year-old Jay Denning, who despite being born without the use of his legs, has become a talented athlete and an aspiring Paralympian. The video, debuting today (9/27), features Denning with his family and community as he works hard at a variety of athletic pursuits, including running, basketball and rock climbing. The hard-working teen is a testament to the song's message of what it looks like to "get up again" when life knocks you down.
The video also gives fans the opportunity to donate to Achilles International, an organization that's helping athletes like Denning not just survive, but thrive, each and every day through programs that empower people with all types of disabilities to participate in mainstream running events. Achilles has more than 70 chapters in the United States and abroad. To donate now, please visit Achilles International.
"I love telling inspiring stories through my music, and Jay's story is an incredible narrative about overcoming the odds," Bremnes says of the visual. "I can't think of a better organization to partner with on this video than Achilles International. The work they're doing is nothing short of spectacular."
Already notching a Top 15 spot at radio, "Up Again" is the second single from Bremnes' latest LP, Wherever I Go (Curb | Word Entertainment). Fans can catch the singer-songwriter on The Trial & Triumph Tour with I Am They this fall.
