General Hospital’s Dillon Quartermaine, Robert Palmer Watkins, is heavily featured in the newest music video of acclaimed musical artist BeLL. The video released on Friday for the first time which has BeLL interpreting the REM classic, Losing My Religion.
Of special note: the editing for the video was completed when the horrific shootings at Orlando’s Pulse Nightclub became national news. Thus prompting BeLL to decide to donate a portion of the streaming proceeds for Losing My Religion to the National Center for Victims of Crime. “The song took on a much deeper meaning then. It’s heartbreaking when people distort & use religion to justify violence & malevolent hatred,” explained BeLL
BeLL’s career thus far has consisted of writing for other artists, including Natalie Imbruglia & The Script’s Danny O’Donoghue, & having songs in the media including a Volkswagen Super Bowl commercial & TV shows like Vampire Diaries & Pretty Little Liars. Known for her live shows consisting of all-female musicians, her cover of REM’s “Losing My Religion” was a collaborative effort between BeLL & AG, a female producer known for the recent haunting rendition of Ciara’s cover of “Paint it Black” featured in Billboard & Rolling Stone.
“Having an all-female crew for the music video was icing on the cake. It created a safe space for the actors to focus on the art & message behind the song and be completely raw rather than focusing on sex appeal,” BeLL recalls.
