Today’s song is “Parachute” by Ingrid Michaelson. The video was helmed by director Adria Petty (Beyonce’s “Sweet Dreams” and Duffy’s “Mercy”) and sees Ingrid rocketing off into space to save a frail plant on a far off planet. While the songs main focus may be love between people, the video focuses on the love between people and nature and boasts stunning visuals saturated in a gorgeous futuristic Little Prince aesthetic.
Ingrid has appeared on Ellen, Good Morning America, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Rachael Ray and was the first unsigned musician ever selected as a Vh1 “You Oughta Know” artist. Her hit single “The Way I Am,” off her breakthrough album Girls and Boys, was not only spun on radio stations all over the country, but was featured in a major national television commercial for Old Navy. She has since sold 2.5 million single downloads, over 560,000 copies of her three albums and “The Way I Am,” was recently certified Platinum.
