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.

Written and Produced by Zoiea Ohizep, Bob Baldwin, and Dennis Johnson
