Video Voyageur: 3Qs with Angel Forrest

Angel Forrest was named Female Vocalist of the Year 7 times by the Toronto Blues Society between 2013 and 2021. In November 2019, ready to hit the American market, Angel released the critically acclaimed album Hell Bent with Grace which has been nominated at the JUNO Awards in 2021 as Blues Album of the Year.

The new single “My Favourite” reflects the love you can beautifully share when you’re in your best place (mentally, emotionally, spiritually…physically). In this time of uncertainty, the song is that plea that we need to find a haven, a place where we can love ourselves and take solace so we can learn to love and be kind to others. We caught up with Angel regarding her new video below.

Tell us the story of this song, why did you choose to visualize this song specifically? 

My husband and co-writer D.Columbus and I spent the last 2 years on an island in the Pacific….we found ourselves very blessed to be surrounded by such beauty during these ugly times. Our creativity, confidence, passion, hope, and joie de vivre returned quickly …we became what we thought, was our best version of ourselves. 

I think the song’s lyrics are very visual.

What was the inspiration behind this video(visuals, storyline, etc.)?

I wanted this time and experience of reflection and rebirth (if you will) documented ….a reminder to us all of the beauty and love that surrounds us.

Finding peace within…on an island or wherever.

‘Love the life you live…live the life you love.’

What was the process of making this video?

‘My Favorite’ was filmed in the Dominican Republic …in Michès to be exact. Mother Nature blessed us that day with perfect weather.

And love was definitely in the air.
