Empire‘s star Jussie Smollett released a new song ‘Freedom’ last month and it’s a war cry for unity.
This week Michael Korte released a video to the song along with dancer Anthony Burrell (who has worked with such divas as Beyonce and Mariah Carey).
Ultimately, he’d like “Freedom” to “encourage community and promote conversation,” as well as “provide escape” in America’s divisive climate.
Watch Korte gracefully dance in an empty cathedral connecting choreography and lyrics. Korte also felt an extreme connection to Smollett’s work stating,
“We have very few gay artists ― especially gay artists of color ― to turn to, to respect and to idolize,” he said. “To have Jussie be who he is, singing about the freedom in loving whomever we so choose … proved to be more than enough inspiration for myself and my team to want to showcase the song.”
