The champion of 'The Voice' season 3 uses photos and video footage from her own childhood in the brand new music video.
Following the release of her songs "Wasting All These Tears" and "You Hear a Song", "The Voice" season three winner Cassadee Pope drops another track off her debut album "Frame by Frame". The 24-year-old singer premieres "11" video which reflects on a particularly rough period in her childhood that began when her father abandoned their family.
Making use of real-life photos and home video footage, Pope revealed how at age 10 her happy childhood started to change when his father "would drive away/ and take his love with him." By age 11, the rest of the family had "moved into a smaller house" and struggled to make ends meet and by the time she turned 13, she resented how her father had appeared to have easily moved on with his life, while her mom struggled.
Co-written and produced by Nathan Chapman, "11" boasts of some very touching lyrics and equally sensitive singing from Pope who says, "I wish I had never turned eleven," hoping she could go back to the time she was seven when her family life was much better and happier. "I wish that I could turn back time/ and tell myself it'll be alright/ you're never gonna lose a lot in your eyes," she sings her heart out.
"11" is one of the eleven tracks in "Frame by Frame", which hits stores on October 8. Its official cover artwork was chosen from two options voted in by her fans through her official website.
