As American citizens struggle to find a political figure to stand by for the 2016 presidential election, Republican candidate Dr. Ben Carson has released his official promise of healing, change and the revival of the American Dream. Highly accredited and decorated pediatric neurosurgeon, Dr. Carson collaborated with Grammy Nominated Multi-Platinum Super Producer Kevin “Khao” Cates, founder of the non-profit organization Bridge Da Gap, to produce a powerful video sharing his message. The video transcends by echoing beyond the financial, business and political burdens plaguing the country, but more so develops a human connection between the cultural divide and evolution towards a brighter future. The mission not only has tremendous social influence and celebrity support, but Khao’s unique style has created a visionary masterpiece for capturing and stimulating the emotions behind the American people especially in the working class. The United States of America has been longing for leadership to establish a unified front as we face various daunting challenges at home and unprecedented threats abroad. America searches to reclaim our pride and status as a force to be reckoned with.
“Breath of Fresh Air” uses grassroots efforts in attempting to appeal to our Nation’s younger demographic. Through this inspirational montage, highlighting Dr. Carson’s strong values, impressive accolades and achievements, the video focuses on his rise from obscurity and underscores his objective to create the same opportunities in America once again.
“Government should respond to the people, not the other way around,” states Carson.
Widely proclaimed as a “non-politician,” Carson currently stands out as he climbed to the #2 spot in the primary polls behind media headliner, Donald Trump. The people have been jaded and lost trust in the campaign process thanks to false hope and candidates who simply could not deliver.
It is known actions speak louder than words, and so “Breath of Fresh Air” chronicles the early process of a true American Renaissance being put into action.
