Glee Project contender, Dani Shays, was eliminated in the first few weeks of the competition, but if she had lasted longer, I wonder if her burgeoning relationship with fellow contestant, Ali Stroker, would have become as much of the show’s storyline as the Charlie/Aylin “showmance”?
I didn’t know the two were a couple until today. Dani never addressed her sexuality on the show (although, maybe she would have eventually) and Ali’s “hook” had nothing to do with sexual preference, but the fact that she’s been in a wheelchair since she was a toddler. Ali made it all the way to 3rd place on the show. If she ever talked about her romance with Dani on camera, that footage is somewhere on the cutting room floor.
No matter, Ali stars in the new music video for “One” a song Dani wrote for her best girl. It appears on the singer/songwriter’s upcoming album, “One: The Winter EP”
Ali and Dani write:
We want to share with you the reasons we created this video, and would also love to hear how it made you feel. Our main goal was to share Love, and to open up a conversation about how true connections can exist beyond physical definitions. We’re both very passionate about moving past the limiting stereotypes we place on ourselves and others. We believe we’re all connected under the surface, and that as we learn to really listen to our hearts (and open our minds), the possibilities are endless. We are so grateful for your time, support, and love; thank you for being a part of this with us! A special thanks also to FUN. and The Ally Coalition (www.theallycoalition.org), for their commitment to positive change, and to Josh & Mara (the video crew) for being so awesome…
Please don’t forget to share your feelings below, and also on our personal blogs, at:
