AGT: All-Stars Finalist Tom Ball Releases ‘Creep’ Music Video
Ball started his journey on AGT: All-Stars by earning the group Golden Buzzer from the judges and host. This sent the singer to the Finals, where he delivered a soaring performance of “Creep” for a chance to be named the winner in next week’s finale.
The new music video for Ball’s cover follows a young girl who doesn’t feel like she fits in at school. She ends up finding belonging with a group of young performers led by Ball himself. The girl in the video is also shown to have diabetes. Ball was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 8 years old. According to the video’s description, Ball felt different after his diagnosis, but music became a source of escapism for him.
“Tom actually recalled not only remembering and relating to Radiohead’s version of ‘Creep’, when first released,” the description continues, “but actually later as a teacher used the song to empower and educated a number of children who expressed to him in feeling that same sense of not fitting in for different reasons.”
Ball Recently Released Another Music Video
Earlier this month, Ball released another music video for his cover of “The Sound of Silence” by Simon & Garfunkel. Ball performed the song in his first appearance on AGT: All-Stars, earning him the group Golden Buzzer.
The video intercuts footage of Ball performing the song with shots of people struggling with homelessness, war, and other real-world problems. There are also shots of people protesting for change. As Ball said in a statement posted in the music video’s description, “This video & song is dedicated to all those who feel they don’t have a voice,”
The finale of AGT: All-Stars will air on Monday night at 8/7c on NBC.
