My Love – Music Video

A great song written by a disabled teenage girl, about her teenage love!

“My Love…” Love, a word upon which our world is built on, a word which comprises of the key elements of the harmonious co-existence of the people of today. A beautiful song with the words taken directly from the soul of a young teenage girl, called Efi Charalambous, music by Stelios Michaelides and orchestrated by George Synnos. Singing this duet together are Veronica Jotovic, an autistic girl with an angelic voice (who was also the personal choice of Efi) in combination with the dynamic voice of Katy Spiller. The video clip is a production of the established and award-winning photographer and videographer, Andreas Tsiartas.

This song talks about love and the teenage love of a girl for a boy. It talks about the “butterflies” that every person feels in their stomach when they fall in love.

That which cannot be expressed in words, may very well be said through the lyrics of a song. Music as a global language can caress the ears of a blind person by creating images in their mind and transcend the body of a deaf person like a vibration, allowing them to dance to the rhythm. It can become words in the mind of a child who finds it difficult to speak, touch the soul of a child with brain paralysis and remind us of what it means to truly love one another. Can a girl or a boy with disabilities fall in love and be loved? Of course they can! All people, even those who look or act a little “differently” from the rest, have the right to love and be loved. 

The word love, however, is not restricted only to romantic love, since love can be felt by a parent/guardian or caregiver for their child and this can be seen in the light that shines in their eyes, in their facial expressions, their body language, in a gesture, a smile or even a warm embrace. Love can exist between two very good friends that do not place labels on their relationship but love each other truly and selflessly.
Behind the creation of this song is a large team of people (with Stelios Michaelides as the main initiator in collaboration with the valuable help of Katy Spiller), who fight on a daily basis to improve the quality of life for people with disabilities and promote respect for their rights. People who are sensitized and who still believe in LOVE. The concept behind the music videoclip of “My Love” a reality due to the invaluable support of the Andrey & Julia Dashin’s Foundation, as well as a multitude of other sponsors and supporters.

Throughout the song’s video clip, we want to pass on the message that love has no labels, it does not differentiate between people and is an inherent right for us all. Hence, it does not matter if some children are different in any way from other children. This does not deprive them of the right to dream, to love, to fall in love and grow up to live a normal life and have the same equal rights and opportunities.
