An Irish singer's emotional music video has been viewed online almost one million times.
Cork-born Stephanie Rainey's video for her latest single 'Please Don't Go' tells the stories of various people who have lost somebody close to them.
The video, posted on her official Facebook page, captures people's emotions as they reveal a message to their loved one and a photograph of a happier time.
The video also features a well-known face, Irish internet comedian Cian Twomey whose father passed away in 2011.
Stephanie posted the video online with a poignant message thanking the people who took part in the filming.
“For the past few months I’ve been working on a video for my track ‘Please Don’t Go’ that I am so honoured to share with you all," she said.
"It’s hard to put into words what this video means to me and how grateful I am to the people who took part - it wasn’t easy.
“A few years ago, I lost my nephew very suddenly and it was something that changed my life forever. I can still remember how it felt and I know there are so many other people who have gone through the same thing in one form or another.
“I feel like this song has resonated the most with me since writing it. I remember the exact place it came from and it never loses its meaning no matter how many times I play it. Since then, I’ve wanted to create a music video that reflects this and which could potentially help people who are struggling with loss while also giving people a chance to tell their story.”
