James Blunt made this powerful music video for Monsters which is a moving goodbye to his seriously ill father.

The singer told his fans that his dad urgently needed a kidney transplant and that he’s preparing for a situation where he will not recover. He wrote this song and shot this music video as a way to say goodbye to his father, if the worst happened. The one-shot film has James looking directly at the viewer, telling us how important his dad is to him and how he wants to stay strong during this awful time.

It’s an emotional video and James is teary-eyed throughout. At the end, as the camera pulls out, it’s revealed that James’ dad is sitting next to him, listening to every word. You can tell that the singer wanted to let his dad know just how much he meant to him before he passes away. The song can be quite hard to listen to at times, but reminds us of the importance of our loved ones and shows us how hard it can be to cope when they’re no longer with us.
