Marsha Ambrosius is known for making videos with powerful messages. In the newly issued visual for “Without You,” the singer battles the effects of being molested as a child.
Ne-Yo, who guest stars on the song, appears in the heartfelt clip to ease Marsha’s pain as she relives the memories by looking at childhood photos. The video was directed by Stephen Wayne Mallett.
Fans have reacted on Twitter and thanked Marsha for bringing the issue of child molestation to light. One fan commented, “@MarshaAmbrosius has offic[i]ally got m[e] teary-eyed. #WithoutYou video was necessary, and beautifully told.” Another wrote, “Took me a long time to let go of the past! Watching this video was like looking in a mirror!!”
The song appears on Marsha’s sophomore album Friends & Lovers, which is due next year.
