Park Ridge, IL (PRWEB) February 10, 2015 –Sarantos’ new rock music video “We Accept The Love We Think We Deserve” is an emotional piece about domestic violence that has perfect timing. While committed to this worthy charity, the music video pokes fun at how hard it is to find the love of one’s life and how frustrating online dating can sometimes turn out to be.
Given that the 50 Shades of Grey movie is set to be released this Valentine’s Day weekend worldwide, Sarantos thought this funny music video should pay homage a tad to this popular movie with a playful S&M scene. Of course, fans will have to watch to see what all the fuss is about but the reviews have been incredible and think “this is a perfect blend of wit, humor and taste while also driving home the overall message that domestic abuse is not ever ok!”
“This music video is light-hearted and I made an attempt at poking fun at how hard dating can be, especially online dating” says Sarantos. “I know people get frustrated. It can be a challenge to find Mr or Ms Perfect. The irony is that we shouldn’t be looking for perfection but someone who completes our soul and allows us to be ourselves while helping us become a better person each and every day. I hope this song helps drive home the message that domestic abuse is simply not ok against men, women and children!”
33% of any music-related sales profits from this song are going straight to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV), has worked since 1978 to make every home a safe home. NCADV works to raise awareness about domestic violence; to educate and create programming and technical assistance, to assist the public in addressing the issue, and to support those impacted by domestic violence. It is the mission of NCADV to work for major societal changes necessary to eliminate both personal and societal violence against all women and children.
Violence against women and children results from the use of force or threat to achieve and maintain control over others in intimate relationships, and from societal abuse of power and domination in the forms of sexism, racism, homophobia, classism, anti-Semitism, able-bodyism, ageism and other oppressions. The abuses of power in society foster battering by perpetuating conditions, which condone violence against women and children.
Sarantos’ music has received rave reviews, and he relishes this chance to pursue his life long dream. Sarantos’ unique sound has been best described by industry insiders as “an emotionally powerful vocal style masterfully united with music that is a fusion of classic 80s rock blended with modern soft rock and pop music.”
Sarantos was nominated in 2014 for 2 awards for the 2014 International Music & Entertainments Awards, for the categories of “Rock Song of the Year” and “Pop Album of the Year.”
With recorded hits and new tunes waiting to be released every single month until the day he dies, Sarantos’ music screams success and stimulates an overdue conversation in the changing music industry. Sarantos’ loyal music fans continue to show their support by proudly showing off Sarantos merchandise and staying tuned into Sarantos’ daily down-to-earth and very real social media revelations. His songs are being broadcast every day on various radios stations around the world. Sarantos continues to do interviews around the world every single week and fans can listen in to some of them on his YouTube page. Let’s not forget his funny, sarcastic, witty and genuine music videos that leave his fans not knowing what to expect next.
There will be plenty of continued buzz throughout the year as Sarantos strives to release something for his fans every single week. Every year until the day he dies, Sarantos will release a new song on the 1st Tuesday of every month, a new music video on the 2nd Tuesday of every month, a chapter from his fiction/fantasy book on the 3rd Tuesday of every month, and a new Whiteboard video on the 4th Tuesday of every month. A new CD will then be released every November.
Sarantos has been writing lyrics since 4th grade and is passionate about the words he puts to the music. Music was always in his blood. Music was always a passion and much more than a hobby. Sarantos has written over 2,000 songs. Having undergone several personal challenges with Sarantos’ father passing away four years ago after a long hard-fought battle with lung cancer, dealing with personal health issues like asthma and allergies which affected his singing style, going thru life’s ups and downs, the timing was finally right. And so it began. Sarantos’ main motivation remains, however, to raise money for charity.
33% of any music related sales are going straight to charity.
Sarantos has always been inclined to help people in need and is proud to launch his music as a way to donate a portion of proceeds to charity, hopefully inspiring other artists to do the same. Just a few of the charities chosen so far include the American Cancer Society, American Lung Association, Make-a-Wish Foundation, American Heart Association, St Jude’s, Hellenic Academy, American Red Cross, Salvaton Army, Children’s Hospital of Chicago…
The website, Melogia (which in Greek means “with words”) was established by Sarantos, an aspiring singer and song writer.
