By enlisting the help of his fans and friends in the industry, Ben Haenow has created a beautiful video for his charity single ‘If You’re Lonely’. The powerful visuals perfectly complement the track!
The video highlights that mental health problems can affect anybody and it features people from all different walks of life. Famous faces involved include: Antony Costa from Blue, Michelle Heaton from Liberty X, Ricky Grover from Eastenders and Divina De Campo from RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.
Describing how the concept for the video came to fruition, Ben Haenow said: “I honestly could not be prouder of this video. The whole #IfYoureLonely campaign is something I felt really compelled to start in a time where the whole world is going through something so unprecedented. It grew from me wanting to relate with other people in this time where we all feel isolated and anxious. Initially, I started by sending messages out on my socials to lift people’s mood and spread some hope. I wanted to get people engaging with each other to try and do some good.
“To me, the video helps to show people struggling with their mental health that they really are not alone in this and that there are many people feeling the exact same way. It highlights again, through the demographic diversity of the people involved, the very real fact that mental health issues can and do affect absolutely ANYONE regardless of: age, gender, race, social status or any other defining characteristic. This project would not be what it is without the involvement of every single person in this video. I hope it brings some strength or comfort to anyone who may be struggling.“
‘If You’re Lonely’ is available on all digital platforms here. The stunning track has touched the hearts of many since its release and all proceeds are being donated to the mental health charity Mind. Ben has also teamed up with Sidelmann for a dance remix of the song which will drop tomorrow.
By wearing his heart on his sleeve, Ben Haenow continues to uplift and inspire his fans with his beautiful music. The handsome singer-songwriter, who recently performed at the Royal Albert Hall, is a sensational talent. We can’t wait to hear the songs Ben has been working on during lockdown.
