Renaiszance, a pop / electronic dance group comprised of brother/sister duo Ravé Mehta (producer and author to THE INVENTOR) and Radha Mehta (lead singer) have released their new music video, “I Will Rise” which uses the art from the graphic novel to evoke Tesla’s story in a unique and powerful way.
“I Will Rise” is the group’s first single off of their debut album, Rise, which was released in April of this year. Author Ravé Mehta produced RISE as an electronic dance concept album that speaks to THE INVENTOR’s story of LOVE, HOPE and FREEDOM.
Ravé Mehta recently completed a TED talk last week in which he discussed graphic novels in education and hyper-visual learning. Ravé discussed the role of the graphic novel and other mediums as tools to re-engage Kids to read and learn while introducing new real-world role models like Tesla that can inspire them to use the power of their mind and ideas.
Renaiszance are currently up for nomination for the 56th Grammy Awards in the following categories: Best New Artist, Best Song of the Year, Best Pop Duo / Group Performance, and Best Pop Vocal Album.
