New "America the Beautiful" Music Video

Today Libera released their new music video for "America the Beautiful." It's beautiful and touching! My great-grandparents emigrated from Ireland to America just as they show in this video. Libera says this video is "in honour of the many emigrants across the world who have sought and continue to seek freedom from disease, poverty, starvation, war and repression." Thank you, Libera!

On May 3, Libera flew to Ireland and filmed this video on the famine ship SS Dunbrody in New Ross, Ireland. Here are some of the photos from the day of filming.

Gabe Collins, Isaac London, Alex Gula, Ben Bywater, Marc Alvares, 
Sam Wiggin, Tom Cooper, Ciaran Bradbury-Hickey, Camden Stewart,
Lucas Wood, Adam Izghouti, Alessandro MacKinnon-Botti
Missing from picture - Tom Delgado-Little (maybe he was the photographer) :D

Another Tom C, but not Cully, newbie Tom Cooper

I love this! Obviously getting ready to emigrate to America and become barons of industry. hehe


  1. Hi Lexi, I was wondering if you could identify the soloists in this video? I can only identify Issac & Thomas DL. Are there anymore?
