Ashley DeRamus Featured In Jason Crabb's “Love Is Stronger” Video
Nashville, TN (August 8, 2013) Ashley DeRamus continues to prove that those born with Down syndrome have ability and not disability. She has once again accomplished something that most young people only dream about and that is to be featured in a music video with Grammy Award winning Gospel Music artist Jason Crabb.
The video was shot in Birmingham; Alabama on August 1 at Caldwell Park featured Jason’s new song "Love is Stronger." Revolution Pictures of Nashville, TN is producing the video with director Roman White. Mr. White has produced videos for Carrie Underwood, Kelley Clarkson, Blake Shelton and others. The Ashley DeRamus Foundation will be using the video to promote Down syndrome awareness and the positive effect on those who are close to someone who has Down syndrome.
The video tells the story about a father telling his daughter goodbye as he leaves to go to war. The daughter has Down syndrome. The father is involved in an IED attack that leaves him severely wounded but he fights to recover from his injuries for his daughter. The video begins with scenes of Ashley DeRamus reciting the Pledge of Allegiance with a Color Guard surrounded by veterans. Local Down syndrome children were used as extras in the video as well as the veterans.
"It's a very cool dream come true. It's really special to me to see lives changing. Down syndrome is really not a disease, it's who you are," Ashley stated in a recent interview about the video.
Ashley along with her mother Connie DeRamus recently launched Ashley by Design, a clothing line specifically tailored to fit women with Down syndrome. The clothing line was first shown at the National Down Syndrome Congress Convention in Denver July 19-21. Ashley says the clothing line will be available shortly online at www.ashleybydesign.com. Ashley also recently spoke at the United Nations about living with Down syndrome as well.
The videos will be available online at www.ashleyderamusfoundation.org beginning September 1 and hard copies will be for sale at the National Quartet Convention in Louisville, Kentucky where the foundation will have a booth in the exhibit hall. Proceeds will go to the awareness of Down syndrome.
