Cutest Light-painting Music Video “Gone” by Kina Grannis

On a scale from 1 to 10, with 1 being the worst, and 10 being top notch, I’d rate this video 8 for its music and art, 7 for its creativity, given that the light-painting idea isn’t exactly new. With that said, on a scale from 1 to 10 of how much I’m in love with Kina Grannis, I’d give it ∞ + 1. Yes, that’s infinity+1, meaning it can’t be measured.

Kina Grannis is a singer/songwriter who started her career on Youtube a few years ago. After posting a bunch of “bedroom” and “backyard” videos on Youtube, she gained enough popularity that she went on tours around the globe for a year straight. Once the tours were over, she went on a “songwriting retreat” where she’d go offline for months, and now Kina has officially released yet another video that would make your heart melt.

The song means a lot to her, as I believe it was written for her mom, who recently passed away due to cancer. When I first heard it at one of her concerts in San Francisco, she almost cried singing it.

Get comfortable, press the ‘Play’ button, and enjoy the music video. In case you missed it, here’s that “In Your Arms” song that was shot with 288,000 jelly beans.

Here’s the “backyard” version of the song.
