"Fly High" (feat. Aisha Jackson) Music Video

"Fly High" (feat. Aisha Jackson) Music Video I wrote this song for anyone with a dream. Finding the courage to take “just one step” may be challenging, but if we trust and believe, there are beautiful adventures and endless possibilities awaiting us. To have the ability to collaborate with the insanely talented Aisha Jackson for the second time in my career was an immense pleasure. Her ability to bring my lyric to life with such passion and soul is a thrill for this songwriter and producer. I am grateful to each of the incredibly generous artists and musicians who helped bring this piece to life. I hope it inspires you. 💙 Available NOW on all platforms, worldwide: https://linktr.ee/michael_mott​ Don't forget to subscribe and hit that bell icon to be the first to see new uploads! iTunes: https://apple.co/48LTFzA Spotify: https://spoti.fi/496ZsPZ Sheet music: https://pul.ly/b/140032 See more from Michael Mott here: https://twitter.com/michael_mott https://www.facebook.com/MichaelMott85 https://instagram.com/michael_mott https://www.tiktok.com/@michael_mott "Fly High" Written by: Michael Mott Vocals: Aisha Jackson Orchestration: Kim Scharnberg Produced by: Michael Mott & Kim Scharnberg Mixed by: Michael Croiter Mastered by: Michael Fossenkemper Executive Producer: Michael Mott Music Video Directed by: Josh Jordan Director of Photography: Josh Jordan Editor: Josh Jordan MUSIC VIDEO CAST (In order of appearance): Gabby Tennor as “Little Girl" Sarah Hamaty as "Casting Director #1" Adam Wolfe as "Casting Director #2" Brianna Kaleen as “Middle GIrl" Lindsay Rider as "Casting Director #3" Aisha Jackson as "Adult Woman" David White as "Casting Director #4" Brad Bosenbeck as "Casting Director #5" Michael Mott as "Audition Accompanist" #michaelmott​​ #aishajackson #flyhiigh​​ ​#flyhighmm ________________________________ "Fly High" Lyrics Just one step, then suddenly A world of possibilities Just one step and I could be Suspended in mid-air Take a chance, take a breath And gaze into the dawn Waiting there are dreams I've wished upon Fly high through the sapphire sky Watching the world below Be free like the wind on the sea Gazing on all I know Past the highest of mountains Over waters so deep Safe as high as a rocket Only if I take the leap Can I fly high through the sapphire sky Watching the world below Be free like the wind on the sea Gazing on all I know So let's go Just one girl on an endless fight For a dream she's trying to hold Free that girl from her endless night So her story can be told Fly high through the sapphire sky Watching the world below Be free like the wind on the sea Gazing on all I know To let go and fly Faith has carried me onward Hope has made me believe Love has given me courage Trust and I can achieve Now I can fly high through the sapphire sky Watching the world below Be free like the wind on the sea Gazing on all I know Now I know To let go And fly

"Cara Mia/ Innamorata" - Michael Mott (Music Video)

"Cara Mia/ Innamorata" - Michael Mott I have always been a romantic at heart. Ever since I could remember, I have been drawn to emotional love ballads centered around love, loss and yearning. Big, lush vocals and stirring passionate music have consistently been the balm for this romantic sap. Growing up, I was enthralled with the studio versions of "Cara Mia" written by Tulio Trapani and Lee Lange, made famous by Jay and the Americans as well as "Innamorata," written by Harry Warren and Jack Brooks, made famous by the incomparable Dean Martin. In 2019, I sat down at the piano and began to play through both of these iconic songs and quickly realized how easily they could be put together. After I created my mash-up, I reached out to musical director, Andy Collopy, to orchestrate for an upcoming live concert later that year. We debuted the piece and the audience response was overwhelming. It has since become a staple in all of my live shows! Over the pandemic, my glorious band recorded their parts from home and my wonderful producer, Rich Matthew, put everything together, adding some additional orchestral elements and the rest is history. Thank you for continuing to support me on my musical journey. I hope "Cara Mia/ Innamorata" is the balm for every romantic either in-love or searching for it. 🌹 Available NOW on all platforms, worldwide: https://linktr.ee/michael_mott Don't forget to subscribe and hit that bell icon to be the first to see new uploads!

Each time we part my heart wants to die. Darling, hear my prayer, Cara Mia, fair. I'll be your love till the end of time. Cara Mia, why must we say goodbye? Each time we part my heart wants to die. Darling, hear my prayer, Cara Mia, fair. I'll be your love till the end of... If our lips should meet, Innamorata, Kiss me, kiss me, sweet, Innamorata. Hold me close and say you're mine With a love as warm as wine. I'm at Heaven's door, Innamorata. Want you more and more, Innamorata. You're a symphony, a very beautiful sonata, My Innamorata, say that you're my sweetheart, my love. Darling, hear my prayer, Cara Mia, fair. I'll be your love till the end of time.
