Ms. Corsino has been involved in music and performance for most of her life. Her parents, Rick and Ginger, started a Top 40 band in the 60's. Kelly began performing with her parents regularly around the age of seven singing songs like 'The Hustle', and other disco favorites of the 70's. When Kelly was in her 20's she started a performance art project called Raven Wylder, and played the Los Angeles club circuit for several years.
Recently her life has taken a spiritual turn, and today she feels that she has found her calling in the "New Thought" music scene.
The music in the video was composed, performed and recorded by Kelly Corsino and Stuart Pearson. The video itself was directed by Kelly as well, featuring hard rendering photography by Joey Lawrence. The video's theme is to raise awareness about the growing homeless problem in the United States of America.
