TWIFF congratulates Director Roy Wol for winning this year’s Best Music Video award with “Try A Little Tenderness.”
“Try A Little Tenderness” hopes to promote tenderness in our world that has been going through rough years with over a thousand terrorist attacks, civilian and police killings, divisive elections, misplaced communities, and orphaned children in war zones. Music has a way of bringing people together, and “Try A Little Tenderness” is an intimate song for all people from all walks of life.
