I meant to post this earlier. Just charge it to my mind and not my heart. While watching various football games on Sunday, I noticed a lot of commercials that were paying tribute to New York and the tragedy that befell this country on September 11th. Watching the Budweiser horses kneel in unison as they look at Manhattan was very moving, but there was one commercial that simultaneously brought a smile to my lips and tears to my eyes. It was the commercial that was directed by acclaimed director Spike Lee for State Farm. The commercial shows a group of school kids serenading an New York Fire Department with Alicia Keys and Jay-Z's 'Empire State of Mind (Part II)'. It was so simple yet still magical and beautiful. Watch the commercial and the behind the scenes videos below.
