“I don’t know about you, but my feeds are filled with news releases, political controversy, and opinions,” said Nadia Khristean, an LDS musician, when discussing her new music video. “And as I’ve been watching all these things come through my feed, I can’t help but think that no matter what our differences may be, whether they’re political, governmental, race, culture, religion or gender.. beneath it all, we’re all just humans, and we all hurt, and sometimes, we all feel a little broken. That’s the message I hope to share during this time with so much controversy. To just remind ourselves to see people as people.”
The new single and accompanying music video, entitled “Broken,” features the BYU Women’s Chorus and Shaun Barrowes. The video also features Mariama Kallon, a refugee who left her war-torn country of Sierra Leone in the 90s.
Nadia is known for supporting causes with her music; she and the BYU Women’s Chorus teamed up with the Refugee Action Network in Utah to collect clothes and hygiene materials for refugees in their area.
