CYNDI LAUPER DROPS TOUCHING MUSIC VIDEO “NOT MY FATHER’S SON” – EMOTIONAL SONG FROM HER HIT BROADWAY MUSICAL KINKY BOOTS RE-IMAGINED AND RELEASED AS NEW SINGLE – Featuring Billy Porter and Stark Sands!
Grammy, Emmy and Tony Award winning artist and activist Cyndi Lauper today released the touching music video for “Not My Father’s Son,” the heartbreaking and inspiring song from her smash hit, Tony Award winning musical, Kinky Boots. Watch on YouTube here. Lauper re-imagined the song, producing and arranging a new, acoustic version of the track, released today by Sony Masterworks.
“Now felt like the right time to do this,” Lauper explained. “I wanted to tell the story of two totally different men, from different walks of life, that come together to realize that it’s our differences that should bring us together. That’s inspiring. And I think we could all use some of that these days… It’s also a great way to welcome Billy and Stark back to Broadway!”
The video, which includes a special appearance by Lauper herself on guitar, stars Tony Award winner Billy Porter (whose recent studio album: Billy Porter Presents The Soul of Richard Rodgers debuted at #2 on the iTunes R&B charts) and Tony Award nominee Stark Sands (who appears alongside Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in Spielberg’s upcoming The Papers)who both returned to Kinky Boots, reprising the lead roles they created as Lola and Charlie, respectively. They returned to the show on September 26, 2017 and will perform for a limited 15-week engagement through January 7, 2018.
