The parents of the late Christina Grimmie, the former “Voice” contestant who was fatally shot in June, have released the first of four music videos from the singer’s EP “The Ballad of Jessica Blue.”
In “Snow White,” Grimmie appears as the titular Jessica, a young girl “at a crossroads in her life.” The video begins with a clip of the singer lying on the ground, speaking to her friend about two suitors, seemingly conflicted about with whom she wants to be. Grimmie then breaks into song with the lyrics, “Some day, my prince will come for me / save me from this harm that haunts me.”
According to the video’s YouTube description, “Snow White” seems to be the first part of the story told throughout the EP, which is a “music video short film.” It reads:
The story follows a young girls [sic] journey into self-discovery through her love life, her womanhood and her music. “Jessica” is at a crossroads in her life. She becomes suspicious of her boyfriend and is gripped by insecurities only to realize that she is doing more damage to her own heart and future than any relationship ever could. Jessica has an upcoming showcase where she hopes to prove to herself and others that her music is as strong as her desire to be great. With the showcase days away she can’t seem to put together her set or her songs. Jessica is torn between boyfriend issues, her creative issues and a general feeling of self-doubt. She confides in the people closest to her and they all give her words of wisdom along her path of self-discovery. Her beloved grandmother reminds her that all the security, strength and love she needs is in that powerful voice on the other side of her heart. Jessica finds her path by doing what she loves. She sings from her heart.
The video was directed by King Hollis of 13 Studios. Watch the whole thing above.
