About his new music video "Celebrate," Alex Boyé wrote on YouTube, "Recently, I saw an interview where a reporter was interviewing a man and his young son that was displaced in the hurricane. When asked how he was doing, he replied, 'I've lost everything, but at least I'm still breathing.' Wow! I was so struck and moved by his incredible perspective during time of great suffering and loss. Even though this song was written months before the hurricane, the mans comment was literally a line in my song, word for word, and made the song even more real and personal to me."
