Birds flying high you know how I feel

Sun in the sky you know how I feel

Breeze driftin' on by you know how I feel

It's a new dawn

It's a new day

It's a new life

For me


It's a new dawn

It's a new day

It's a new life

For me


And I'm feeling good

Fish in the sea you know how I feel

River running free you know how I feel

Blossom on the tree you know how I feel

It's a new dawn

It's a new day

It's a new life

For me

And I'm feeling good

Dragonfly out in the sun you know what I mean, don't you know

Butterflies all havin' fun you know what I mean

Sleep in peace when day is done

That's what I mean

And this old world is a new world

And a bold world

For me

Stars when you shine you know how I feel

Scent of the pine you know how I feel

Oh freedom is mine

And I know how I feel

It's a new dawn

It's a new day

It's a new life

For me

Ohh I'm feeling good

Ohhh, this is lovely! I've always loved that track by Nina Simone, and you've done a fantastic job matching lyrics and the energy of the song to the vid you've crafted. Razor-sharp editing, very enjoyable to watch, and it evokes a ton of feeling for Mariah that's otherwise very diffused throughout the season of Luke Cage. :)

Such a fantastic vid! Wonderful song choice for Mariah. She's such a great character and you've done a great job capturing her complexity. I thought the clip choice for "I know how I feel" in particular was perfect. Will be watching this many times!

Daaaaaaamn this was so good! It built up so beautifully, and I got chills during "freedom is mine" when Cottonmouth, uh, fell out the window (and really everything that came after that, too). Mariah is such a badass. So thankful you made this!

Oh wow, I love this. The song is such a great fit for Mariah's bravado and swagger, the tension between her self-reinvention and her playing out of Mama Mabel's story (those paired shots of each of them drinking, followed later in the vid by turning down Mama Mabel's photo -- I got chills).

This might be my favourite Festivid this year. It's in the running for sure. Haunting, beautiful, rich and complex, just like Mariah herself. I wanted this vid so badly and I'm just thrilled that you made it. I love the use of black space at the beginning, the way you take your time and don't overplay it, so the buildup is slow and sweet like the song. 10000% endorsement of Mariah/Shades JUST the way you play it here, with her in total control. Ugh I just want to roll around in this vid forever. It's delicious to get to glory in loving such a gorgeous villain, and that's what this vid lets us do.

Mariah is my FAVE so I was soooo happy to see a vid all about her! I thought this vid was amazing and as soon as I finish the show (almost done!), I will leave you more feedback :)

Wow I LOVE this vid and how you put it together. Gorgeous song choice and I love how you use the opening to tease it with the black fades and the painting on "new day" was AWESOME. You capture her power through so many amazing looks and I love that shot of her walking away from Shades. I love how you show her past and how she tries to show a beautiful facade for the cameras and public. I love how you show her grappling with the emotions of what's happening and the "freedom" being him falling out the window (with the black fades highlighting it niiice!) was PERFECT! All the Mariah/Shades stuff was amazing and I looove that :2:2:33-2:40 section SO MUCH with how it builds up the emotion and excitement and ends on her in control with that beautiful blue light. And the dialogue clip at the end was the PERFECT fuck yeah ending :D Such an amaaaazing vid, thank you so much for making it!!!

Okay vidder, there is NO EXCUSE for taking so long to watch and comment on this. I absolutely love Mariah Dillard and this vid suits her perfectly! Perfect song choice, love the opening shots especially the 'Jesus saves' and Red Kings painting on 'it's a new day', the Shades/Mariah Of It All, the recurring gun & family photo imagery (loved her turning the photo over at 2:16 right after the Cottonmouth sequence). You just captured her character arc & contradictions so well here. Again I'm so sorry for being a late-commenting recipient but I LOVE this vid and am so grateful to you for making it. <3
