What started for Chad King as a mantra for living his life with Multiple Sclerosis became a more universal message for the video for “Won’t Stop Running” from his band A Great Big World.
The simple but poignant video, shot in black and white, features a range of others who live with significant hardships, including Orange is the New Black actress Pat Squire, an LGBTQ advocate, a transgender model, a rapper who is deaf, and a cancer survivor. The song preaches a message of hope and determination for a life not dictated by a diagnosis.
A Great Big World also teamed up with each of the people in the video to create an affiliated website that features all of their stories in the form of interviews, plus an individual charity that each person represents.
