THE MUSIC VIDEO for Cork singer Stephanie Rainey’s latest single ‘Please Don’t Go’ tells the stories of a group of people who lost somebody they loved.

The video shows them with photos of their loved ones and then holding up signs where they write how the person died, what they miss most and what they would want to say to that person.

Stainey said, “It’s hard to put into words what this video means to me and how grateful I am to the people who took part, it wasn’t easy.

A few years ago, I lost my nephew very suddenly and it was something that changed my life forever.

The video was released yesterday and has already been viewed over a million times.

The singer posted on her Facebook page, “To John, Dylan, Donna, Cian, Moira, Gary, Teresa, Kate and Tony, I will never be able to thank you enough for your honesty and willingness to share what you did, it takes tremendous courage and I have so much respect for you all. ”
