Reanna Guerrero, a freshman at Eastern Washington University, and her music teacher mom, Rosi, are featured in an official, Earth Day-inspired music video released on April 22. Major Lazer and Mumford & Sons’ Marcus Mumford recruited more than 200 artists from nearly 30 countries for their collaborative single “Lay Your Head on Me.”
The song aims to unite a world grappling with the COVID-19 pandemic through music and dance. The musicians received more than 1,000 submissions from people all around the globe—self-isolating due to the outbreak—but still able to play along, sing along and dance to the song. Reanna and Rosi’s video was chosen to be part of the official video.
“Reanna and I are very honored to be able to share a powerful message through this song with the entire global world,” says Rosi Guerrero. “Music is a healing component like no other. It has no boundaries, no restrictions, no fear.”
The Guerrero’s have roots in the Spokane community. Rosi is a piano and theory instructor at Spokane Falls Community College. Reanna, 18, graduated from North Central High School last year and is now an Honors Program student studying education at EWU.
“Even in a small city like Spokane, we know there is a lot of talent out there among our young generation,” says Rosi. “We’re very honored to be recognized in a music industry at this level with some of the greatest artists, producers and musicians of our time.”
The mother-daughter duo teamed up on the piano for their submission. They shared their full YouTube video with us; you can watch it below.
Then watch for Reanna and Rosi in the full, official music video of “Lay Your Head on Me.” (Hint: pay close attention at the 2:44 mark.)
University leadership recently featured Reanna and Rosi’s video in a campus town hall meeting as a way to share inspiration and joy with the Eastern community. There’s no doubt, these two are yet another example of what it means to be Eagle Strong.
“We love our EWU family and community,” the mother-daughter team adds. “Thank you so much for listening!”
