Actor-singer-songwriter Jay Jacobson's
debut video from his new studio album Revelations is quickly
gaining fans on YouTube.
The video for Love is Love has
attracted more than 1,400 views in just under two days.
The song is “about equality,
especially for the gay and lesbian community,” Jacobson told On
Top Magazine in an email.
In the video, Jacobson is rejected by
his parents after announcing he's found a new love, a gay love.
“Why are they so sad I found love?”
“I thought they would be oh so
happy,” he sings, then over video of his parents receiving the
sacrament with tiny Bibles instead of communion wafers he adds, “but
they're blinded by lies from above.”
The video goes on to criticize Catholic
Church teachings that label gay relationships as sinful. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)
Jacobson has appeared in numerous
theater productions and in several independent films, including Ghost
in the Garden and A Date With Howie.
Revelations was released on
November 19 and is available for purchase on Apple's iTunes.
