Watch the Emotional New Music Video for Linkin Park’s ‘One More Light’ (video)
As if this song didn't make me cry enough, Linkin Park made a music video and visual tribute to Chester Bennington. I'm not going to have a dry eye for days. Possibly weeks.
It's been about 2 months since Chester Bennington passed away and I still get emotional when I hear certain Linkin Park songs. Especially "One More Light", the title track off of their latest album.
And since the song was released as a single mere hours before we found out about Chester's passing, it is the song most fans associated with him and his passing. It's kind of ironic that the song itself (even though it wasn't meant to be about Chester) is a kind of 'going away' letter to the world.
So, in light of that, Linkin Park decided to make the music video for this emotional song all about Chester. So get your tissues ready, because here come the water works....
“One More Light was written with the intention of sending love to those who lost someone. We now find ourselves on the receiving end. In memorial events, art, videos, and images, fans all over the world have gravitated towards this song as their declaration of love and support for the band and the memory of our dear friend, Chester. We are so very grateful and can’t wait to see you again.”
