    NEW! Roller Skate Video & Backstory!

    NEW CUT OF ROLLER SKATE! Watch the updated cut of Sheryl's Roller Skate video here: http://youtu.be/YwDnpKSVwxQ

    AND THE OLD SCHOOL SKATING FOOTAGE BACKSTORY: the wonderful vintage skating footage used in the "Roller Skate" video was originally shot by a man named Christopher in Venice Beach in 1997. Here's what he has to say about the video and the time:

    "I am proud and happy to have captured these moments from the Venice Beach skate scene at the height of its popularity in the mid 90s. It made perfect sense to me to make a music video, because I always felt my fellow skaters were rock stars to me. Magic was created every time we skated together, and that's what brought us to the beach every weekend. I am grateful for having spent time with people who shared my love for expressing joy through skate dancing." 

     

    Thanks to Christopher and to all the incredible Skaters featured in the "Roller Skate" video for their generosity and spirit:
