The Promise

No one knew it would be Chris’s last video. Everyone knew it could be his most powerful.

Written and performed for the film The Promise, the song, the film and the historical context of the film were deeply meaningful to Chris. So much so that he donated all of his proceeds from the song to the International Rescue Committee to support their work with refugees. It was Chris’s request that the video be released on June 20, World Refugee Day, the annual commemoration by the United Nations Refugee Agency to spotlight ‘the strength, courage and perseverance of millions of refugees.’

The video became part of a social media movement to #keepthepromise to remember and act on genocide and refugee crises in the world.
