The music video for Kina Grannis’ “Oh Father” from her ELEMENTS album is just visually stunning. It is equally as beautiful as the song itself and it is so rare that I enjoy a music video. I find myself clicking the replay button on this music video over and over partly because the cinematography is beautiful but more so because I simply love hearing Kina’s voice. She’s like an angel but without wings (finish that quote). To top it off, her covers are just as great as her original music and if you’re new to Kina Grannis, I would suggest this “Thinking Out Loud,” Ed Sheeran cover to start with. Perhaps you can follow that up with this “Clean” by Taylor Swift cover because I find it so much more enjoyable than the original.
