Dr. Maya Angelou's Harlem Hopscotch: Official Music Video

The official music video for Dr. Maya Angelou’s “Harlem Hopscotch.” The game of hopscotch is symbolic of the difficulties of life and the obstacles that some face, whether they be wealthy or poor.

Dr. Angelou’s inspiring song is featured on the newly released album “Caged Bird Songs,” produced by RoccStar and Shawn Rivera of the R&B vocal pop group Az Yet. The album thoughtfully blends the iconic poet's words and vocal performances with contemporary hip-hop beats. She worked on this album prior to her death on May 28, 2014.

The “Harlem Hopscotch” music video was directed by and features choreography from Emmy award-winning duo Tabitha and Napoleon Dumo, a/k/a NappyTabs, best known for their work on the hit television series “So You Think You Can Dance.” “Harlem Hopscotch” was shot on location in Harlem, New York, and several Los Angeles locations, including the studios at YouTube Space LA, Venice Beach and downtown Los Angeles. The video features appearances by actress and singer Nia Peeples (“Fame”, “Pretty Little Liars”), dancer/choreographer Derek Hough, actor Alfonso Ribeiro, actress/singer Zendaya, dancer/choreographer Ian Eastwood, Quest Crew and dancers from “So You Think You Can Dance” and “America’s Best Dance Crew.”
