Nakashima Mika – Cry No More

Posted on: February 16, 2006

Mika Nakashima’s PV for her single “Cry No More” has finally been released. Staying true to the term gospel blues, the video was filmed in Memphis, USA. Historically, Memphis has been credited as a birth place of music such as blues, gospel, and even rock & roll; By the African American community. Mika felt deeply in her video, beginning symbolically with a bus ride (R.I.P. Rosa Parks). Much of Memphis’s history dealt with the Civil Rights Movement, where Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. Mika took on a very emotional subject in her video by holding a cotton plant through the song. This touching PV strongly expresses black slavery, civil rights, music, and freedom.
