Israel advocacy organization Stand-With-Us has released a music video clip dedicated to the three kidnapped Israeli teens.
The video, “Home”, originally performed by Phillip Phillips, features hip hop artist and YouTube sensation Eppic and Israel’s The Voice stars Daniella Milo and Rudy Beinsin. Filmed in Israel, it showcases landmarks such as the Negev desert and Dead Sea, as well as spots around Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. It has reached over 35,000 views since its release.
“The song ‘Home’ talks about the meaning of Israel to me, a safe, warm home,” Milo said in a press release.
This project was an initiative of students from the StandWithUs Fellowship at Bar Ilan University.
“The video allows you to view Israel beyond the conflict, which dominates the world media,” student organizer Assaf Shevach said in a press release. “By combining music and today’s digital reality we can reach hundreds of thousands of people – maybe millions – around the world and show them the unique and diverse sides of Israel.”
Eppic described the experience as one of the best weeks of his life in his You- Tube description for the video. During his trip he shared photos of sites in Israel with fans over Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. The video was filmed in October 2013.
