Janelle Monáe is bringing forth the holiday season with a starring role in Gap’s new holiday campaign.
The Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter has teamed up with the fashion brand on the latest edition of its ‘Meet Me in the Gap’ series, ringing in the festive season with a rendition of Freddie Scott’s “(You) Got What I Need.” The star is joined by a cast of six choirs for the Paul Hunter-directed video, featuring a diverse range of singers from different backgrounds and genres.
“The Gap has been a part of my life since I was a little girl so it was very exciting to be involved in this campaign,” said Monáe in a statement. “I love the unity of the ‘Meet Me in the Gap’ concept. It really reflects the idea that although we may be from different parts of the world, when we come together, we can create something magical.”
Adding, “As a country and as Americans, we’re strongest when we come together. I hope that when people watch [the commercial] they feel encouraged to meet each other; to talk; to listen — around the holidays, especially, and beyond.”
