A chance meeting between two strangers in Singapore has ultimately led to a campaign to support LGBTQ youth across America. Mission Road Entertainment has partnered with The Trevor Project, the world’s largest suicide and crisis prevention organization for LGBTQ youth, to support the organization in their noble mission. Mission Road founder Daniel Yearwood, performing under the stage name Yearwood, has just released a new music video for his fourth single entitled  “Nutten Wit We”. The single is a love song for his newlywed wife and Mission Road will be donating $25,000 proceeds from the sales of associated merchandise to The Trevor Project.

Originally from Trinidad & Tobago, Daniel spent the last seventeen years in a career in investing, obtaining a BSc in Computer Science from Morgan State University, an MBA in Finance from The Wharton School at University of Pennsylvania and an MPA in International and Global Affairs from Harvard University. He then went on to start Mission Road Entertainment, aiming to create a digital media firm that would bring underrepresented communities to the forefront of the global media landscape.

The music video for “Nutten Wit We” is a heartwarming experience. It is filled with enchanting moments between Daniel and his wife, through both playful social media ready cell phone footage and professional shots across the High Line. The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic forced some deviations from the original plan such as shooting some performance shots in Daniel’s bedroom and apartment rooftop as well as having all the other couples cast in the video submit self recorded footage rather than reporting in person on set. The music video also features numerous shots of areas in New York City, which are usually crowded, giving the city an eerily new and different vibe. 

To top it all off, the talented musician used real-life footage of his wedding proposal to his wife which captured her heartwarming and tear-jerking reaction in the sea of people. This gave the music video nostalgic vibes, which the viewers can easily relate to. It is almost like watching true to life documentation of how two strangers quickly fell in love and decide they want to spend the rest of their lives with each other. 

In support of the LGBTQ community and to increase the visibility of the community in media, the music video shows different expressions of love. It features five diverse couples, including a trans and lesbian couple. This is in line with the advocacy of Mission Road Entertainment and The Trevor Project, which is the world’s largest organization dealing with crisis and suicide prevention for LGBTQ youth. With that in mind, part proceeds of the LGBTQ-themed shirts featuring a line from Daniel’s track will be donated to the organization to help support their mission.

Indeed, the music video highlights the reality that people do not choose who they love; love chooses them. The released track does not just serve as music to people’s ears. It also serves as a way to advance an important cause in society, and inspiration to spark acceptance in society.
