America’s Got Talent Duo, RAII & Whitney, Release New Video
RAII & Whitney, a married duo wrapping love and harmony in a melodic package of reality, began their national journey in music as supporting vocalists for artists such as Alicia Keys, Ed Sheeran, and Emeli Sande, to name a few. Between worldwide tour stops, America became familiar with the upbeat pair in 2016, after ‘wowing’ the judges on America’s Got Talent. Taking time between tour gigs to craft their sound and style, as we head into 2018, the union is stepping out on their independent platform, His & Her Entertainment, to share original music with the masses.
First up, is the visual release of their triumphant single, “No Worries Step Clap”. Created during a period in the couple’s lives where the stage lights dimmed and employment was scarce, causing financial hardship, they leaned on music as a healing mechanism and motivation to plot their next moves.
“During that time, I was sitting in the living room one day and started creating the music to [what would become] No Worries Step Clap, ” RAII said. “My wife heard the music, came in singing “No Worries, we’ll get through it all” and right then and there, we wrote the song.”
“No Worries Step Clap” would become RAII & Whitney’s “anthem of perseverance” with a message that also aims to sprinkle a bit of comfort amid the chaos of today’s society.
“It’s not about what we go through but how we get through it,” Whitney expressed. “If you’re willing to keep trying, you can get through it. That’s what we want people to get from the song and music video.”
Under the creative direction of Jemel McWilliams ( John Legend, Janelle Monae, Alicia Keys, and The Walls Group), the thematic visual takes the storytelling route and travels through nostalgic eras of the 60s to the 2000s, inclusive of a colorful and energetic salute to the 90s and significant audio highlights from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and Malcolm X.
Vocally, RAII & Whitney’s gift complement each other and please the ear with soulful, airy riffs, an upbeat tempo and lyrics that speak, not only to their personal story, but also to a human experience.
Through song, RAII & Whitney illustrate that when it’s the real thing, love prevails adverse circumstances. So, get your two-step ready and be prepared for an energy boost with “No Worries Step Clap.”
