Cece Teneal, the “voice of neo-blues”, has unleashed her powerful premiere music video for her cover of The Beatles’ “Eleanor Rigby” from her debut full-length album Train From Osteen, released this past October. Directed by Blue Motion Productions, Cece Teneal’s “Eleanor Rigby” brings to life the massive domestic issue of homelessness on our streets as she brazenly points a finger at today’s political leaders to answer the blatant question:
“All the lonely people, where DO they all belong?”
Throughout this provocative and soul-stirring video, Cece takes her spotlight into her own hands and shines it on individuals who are on the street and overtly suffering from despair. Not only does Cece Teneal’s video for “Eleanor Rigby” raise awareness of the extremely serious and steadfast issue of homelessness in the United States, but it also tells a thousand compelling tales of individual sorrows through the eyes of each man and woman featured on camera.
Additionally, “Eleanor Rigby” is sprinkled with sepia-toned vignettes of the recent Republican debates on tv as well as President Obama, whom is a notable fan of Cece Teneal’s after he publicly thanked her for performing at a Fall 2011 democratic fundraiser event in Orlando. However, it is made clear that Cece features these political leaders to bring light to the fact that they are the ones who need to aggressively take action to rectify this heartbreaking issue affecting a growing number of our nation’s citizens residing on the lonely streets of the United States today.
Cece Teneal’s commanding vocals and presence in her debut music video for “Eleanor Rigby” could not be a more ideal soundtrack to illustrate an equally powerful issue that faces our country today.
