The former lead singer of Kansas, whose amazing video for his new single tells the story of his adopted daughter’s birth and surviving an abortion, has gone viral.
Elefante released a music video for the song, “This Time,” which was inspired by his adopted daughter Sami’s birth. Posted to YouTube and announced on September 16th, the video quickly went viral, with more than 100,000 views in just the first five days.
The song’s lyrics are based
on the true story of what Sami’s 13-year old birth mother might have experienced as “she sat cold in a waiting room, frightened and all alone / knowing that her baby would soon be gone.” As the video unfolds, we see the dreams she had of a little girl celebrating her third birthday and growing into a woman through the years, and we hear the voice she heard telling her to “run away / you’re not taking her / this time.”
