Love Is Stronger Video Nominated For AGM Award
The video, shot in Birmingham, Alabama on August 1st at Caldwell Park, featured Jason’s new song "Love is Stronger." Revolution Pictures of Nashville, TN produced the video with director Roman White. Mr. White has produced videos for Carrie Underwood, Kelley Clarkson, Blake Shelton and others. The Ashley DeRamus Foundation has used 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 an interview about the video.
Ashley along with her mother Connie DeRamus have 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. Ashley says the clothing line as well as the video, "Love Is Stronger” is now available online at www.ashleybydesign.com. Ashley also recently spoke at the United Nations about living with Down syndrome as well.
