Sarah Belkner taps 100-year-old Eileen Kramer to dance in her latest video

Maybe age really is just a number.

Sydney based singer, songwriter, arranger and composer Sarah Belkner has released her latest video track titled ‘Susanne’ over the weekend. In the clip, Belkner graces us with her chilling, angelic vocals, dancing along side the beautifully talented Eileen Kramer.

At 100 years of age, Eileen defies age, proving that it really is just a number. Her story, as possibly the longest living dancer and choreographer, has inspired many around the world, not to mention Sarah Belkner, who requested that she feature in the ‘Susanne’ video.

The song tells a story of finding a particular comfort in the kindness of strangers, after meeting someone at a party the night after Jill Meagher’s body was found in Melbourne 2012.

“I had been in Melbourne performing the previous day when she was found and felt the weight and impact it had on our society. It was rightfully shocking. I was also going through a lot of personal things at the time and that simple conversation brought me around to hope again. I have never seen that person again but it made an impact on me and I was very grateful.”

Belkner says being able to meet and work with Eileen was “one of the most profound meetings of my life.”

‘Susanne’ is seriously moving and is now available on iTunes.
