April Shipton, a nationally recognised Christian recording artist from Ross, has launched her debut music video.

A celebration of perseverance and hope, ‘Journey On’ is an uplifting driving song that speaks of the twists and turns of life and encourages listeners “you’re doing better than you give yourself credit for.”

The video for ’Journey On’ features Ross residents and includes scenes filmed in the town and surrounding area. The stunning video follows two inspirational storylines and was filmed over four months, directed by renowned filmmaker Abhinav Varun Revis of CBN Europe.

“It’s been such an intense, thorough process,” April explains, “I didn’t want to settle for mediocre, I wanted to create something that would be profound and impacting in every sense, so I crowdfunded the costs and approached the very best in the business.”

The project combined the skills of two camera operators, 8 actors and dozens of extras including the Ross Gazette’s own Reporter, Holly Clack and local businessman Luke Sutton. Supporters raised the £1,200 needed to cover production costs in just three weeks earlier this year. Others offered skills, time and even their own cars to pack as much cinematic quality into the video as possible.

You can watch the video or get in touch on April’s Facebook page: or visit: this week’s paper for more stories like this, available in shops and as a Digital Edition now.
