Last year, ‘Raise My Hands‘ played the fest circuit as a tribute to Nelson Mandela. Given his current condition, we wish him strength and want to share the 8 minute celebrity driven piece with all of you featuring the likes of Clint Eastwood, Forest Whitaker, Robert DeNiro, Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon, Sharon Stone, Cyndi Lauper, Quincy Jones, Wyclef Jean, Will.I.Am and Morgan Freeman.
With the July 4th weekend just past, this is a good time to reflect on those with freedoms, those who’ve been freed and the millions of deserving individuals for whom it’s a concept only.
The piece is written, narrated and produced by Celebs.com’s Elliot Kotek, edited and directed by Frank Kelly & all photographs other than the final frame are by the award-winning Scott McDermott.
