Katie Armiger recently spent a couple of days in Los Angeles, where she filmed the music video for her new single, “Safe.”
The video, however, became extra special to Katie when she and director Justin Baldoni turned it into a tribute to first responders. Rather than hiring actors to play the part, the Long Beach Fire Department stepped up to the plate and donated not only their time, but their facilities.
“They made the video,” Katie tells Country Weekly. “When you see the video, you’ll say, ‘Oh, yeah . . . she couldn’t have done it without them!’ They were such great guys.”
The video coincides with Katie’s new campaign, Project Feel Safe, which was inspired after writing “Safe” with fellow singer/songwriter Mallory Hope. The project is something Katie holds near and dear to her heart, as she has several first responders within her own family.
Katie has been touring various fire stations throughout the country over the past few months and has been compiling photographs and videos of first responders’ incredible stories to share through the campaign’s official website, youmakemefeelsafe.com .
