Sarantos helps us start our summer by releasing his newest pop music video that will encourage a summertime of fun in 2014.
The promising artist quickly responded to his fans request by releasing the music video to his hit pop song ‘A Sunny Day’. With this newly released video, Sarantos hopes to encourage everyone to stay enthusiastic and to simply have a sunny day no matter what storm might arise.
This song does signify an importance to Sarantos personal life. Not too long ago, Sarantos lost his devoted father, after a hard-fought battle to lung cancer. This experience had a major impact towards Sarantos life, enabling him to overcome any obstacle that may pass. The Chicago singer has since been driven to remain strong and positive not just for himself but for his friends & fans.
“Going through life’s hardships has given me the willpower to write songs and to sing from the heart,” says Sarantos. “I wouldn’t have had the passion to strive for my dreams if it wasn’t for my loving family. I know my father would have been very proud of me.”
Sarantos releases his 6th music video, a fun-intuitive summer pop song signifying bliss and optimism, inspiring fans to smile endlessly. The song was released on June 3rd, 2014.
Sarantos' has a strong motivation with his musical passion to raise money for charity. 33% of any music-related sales profits are going straight to charity. For “A Sunny Day”, Sarantos has chosen the Thanioton Society.
“This is a very happy and bright pop song about a sunny day and all the events that transpire on that beautiful day,” says Sarantos. “The sky is bright. The simple things are so apparent and the positive vibe encompasses everyone. This day was meant for you!”
Chicago’s very own music artist has been gaining followers ever since his first song debut back in January 2014.
Internationally, the buzz has continued to spread and Sarantos music has received over 800,000 radio airplays. His fan list continues to grow exponentially.
The social media realm has continued to embrace this rising star. In addition to the attention of over 1M social media followers, Sarantos has now done many radio interviews throughout the world. All this commotion started when his 1st song “Not Where I Wanna Be” was released worldwide on January 2nd, 2014.
Sarantos strives to inspire people with his songs and lyrics. Music is always on his mind and Sarantos has written over 2,000 songs. Sarantos' music has received rave reviews so far from industry insiders, and he relishes this chance to pursue his lifelong dream.
Sarantos unique sound has been best described by industry insiders as "An emotionally powerful vocal style masterfully united with music that is a fusion of classic 80s rock blended with modern soft rock and pop music!"
A new song will be released the 1st Tuesday of every month to tease his fans. Then a new music video on the 2nd Tuesday of every month, a new Funny video of the month on the 3rd Tuesday of every month and a new Whiteboard video on the 4th Tuesday of every month. This will go on for the entire year! The CD will then be released on November 18th 2014.
Sarantos has always been inclined to help people in need and is proud to launch this CD as a way to donate a significant portion of proceeds to charity, hopefully inspiring other artists to do the same. The 11 charities chosen for each album song include American Lung Association, Make-a-wish Foundation, American Heart Association, St Jude's, Hellenic Academy, ASERF, American Red Cross, Children's Hospital of Chicago, Chicago Medical School, Thanioton Society & the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
The website, Melogia (which in Greek means "with words") was established by Sarantos, an aspiring singer and song writer.
