I’ve seen a lot of videos on the islands in the Caribbean that were impacted by the hurricanes this year but this one, featuring St. John in the US Virgin Islands, takes the cake for being the biggest tear jerker.
Created by St. John based Steve Simonsen Photography for a fundraiser for Friends of Virgin Islands National Park, the video highlights areas of St. John before and after the storms. In a couple instances, the video morphs from the before to the after in one shot for added dramatic effect. Set to Joe Cocker’s “You Are So Beautiful,” the video is sure to elicit strong emotions for one of the hardest hit of the Caribbean islands.
