Fantastic Negrito shares new video and celebrates second Grammy nomination
08 February 2019
Today, Fantastic Negrito shares the video for "A Boy Named Andrew" from his sophomore album Please Don't Be Dead. The release arrives ahead of the 61st annual GRAMMY Awards airing Sunday, February 10, where he'll celebrate his second consecutive nomination for "Best Contemporary Blues Album."
On the release, Negrito states, "I was 'A Boy Named Andrew.' I grew up in foster care feeling like an outsider, and I wanted to write a song about it - about the real stories and real people I met that may not get their stories heard. The video was shot on location in Milan. We love Italy and the energy of the people there. It was directed by a talented 18 year old named Freddy Macdonald. Thanks Freddy for all your time and energy making this happen."
