In an unexpected collision of various interests of mine, a political celebrity came across and shared the music video of a family friend.
Northwest New Jersey school teacher and mother of two Lee-Ellen Pisauro has spent a few years now sharing her experiences and emotions — particularly related to her youngest son, who has Down’s Syndrome — through music. Picking up a few gigs in local bars, then national awareness walks, working with friends to produce a CD and, most recently, sharing a music video for a particularly personal song.
From when I was the 17th view on the video last week, Pisauro’s video has now surpassed 60,000 views — and climbing. As of Friday, when the attention came, Lee-Ellen said she had received almost 2,000 messages and thousands more comments.
See the wholesome, heartfelt video for the song about her son Sam below.
