ZOIEA – SUNRISE Official Music Video

When I produced my first feature film PRICELESS back in 2007, I had a party scene with an extra named Zoiea Ohizep from New Rochelle who was invited by another actor. Little did I know at the time that he had a long career as a songwriter and backup singer to such legends as Freddie Jackson, Melba Moore, Atlantic Starr, and so many others. We always discussed making a video to one of his songs and it took years until we finally got around to SUNRISE. Sit back, relax, and enjoy.
