(NASHVILLE, TN) - USA TODAY is hosting an exclusive video premiere of the emotional video to Jason Crabb's 'Love Is Stronger,' the title track from his latest release. The video highlights special needs and military families in a storyline starring Ashley DeRamus, a young woman living with Down syndrome and Jack Morgan, a military veteran. The video can be found by clicking here: www.usatoday.com
Filmed in Birmingham, AL at five different locations, the video has struck a poignant chord with viewers across the country. "When Roman White brought the story line to me, I knew this video was going to be an emotional one," said Jason Crabb. "We partnered with the Ashley DeRamus Foundation to depict individuals living with Down Syndrome as normal, everyday people who go through things, such as their Dad going to war. I am so thankful that Ashley and Jack agreed to do this video. I know it will bless many people with the message that yes, life is tough, but LOVE is always stronger!"
Ashley DeRamus and Jason Crabb met over ten years ago at a concert and developed a strong friendship. When the idea came for this music video, Jason knew he wanted to partner with Ashley and her foundation to bring awareness to Down Syndrome.
Ashley comments: "I've always said: Don't let anyone tell you what you can't do, show them what you can do. That is why I am so happy to have this opportunity to partner with Jason and Roman and include my down syndrome and special needs friends. It has been a dream of mine to act, and now I can cross that off my bucket list thanks to Jason!"
When the script called for the part of a wounded military member, Jason asked his Facebook friends to find someone for him. Jack Morgan, a military veteran, was submitted by a friend and the rest, as they say, is history.
