Major label recording artist Harley Di Nardo has seen too much heartache and career ups and downs to mention. In honor of his sister's death on 9/11, Harley is now taking his grievances of the past, with all the beauty that surrounds him today, and mixing it together for a music video in which he stars alongside his children.

It's a really good song, and in honor of my sister, I'm giving it a life it's never had.

Major label recording artist Harley Di Nardo lost his sister Marisa Di Nardo in the horrific 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. Never missing a performance, she truly was his biggest fan. She also adored children and never got the chance to have her own. To pay tribute this year, Harley decided to create a music video starring alongside his children in his sister’s honor.

“People are asking if we were close. She practically raised me. As my only sibling and best friend, I often think about how she would have been with my kids if she were still alive. They would have been her world."

Harley decided the songs he and his bandmates worked tirelessly to create 20 years ago is worth another listen. Marisa’s niece and nephew (Melody Marisa, 4 and Hudson Alexander, 9) are featured in the video using Harley’s past album track "Bigger Than You." In honor of his beloved sister Marisa, he’s decided to release the video on Youtube and this coming 9/11.

“There is definitely a larger energy at work here. The timing, the way it all came together so quickly, it’s like something 'bigger than me' used me as a vessel to put this whole thing together. The songs have just been sitting on iTunes with no attention from the record label." (Di Nardo was signed to Warner Bros. and Octone/BMG.)
"My sister would’ve wanted me to do this, to fire up the engines one more time in her honor. Just because it didn’t happen then, doesn’t mean that it won’t ever. Everyone’s story is different, I’m just continuing mine.”

Having all his emotions blended with such a creative energy, he came up with this heartfelt, impressive video that will definitely leave one touched and inspired. “Bigger Than You” and the remaining album of Di Nardo's former band Closer can be found on iTunes at and on Spotify under Closer's "Don't Walk" album. Fans can also download songs at no cost on his website
