WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) – A refurbished former silent movie theater in North Carolina has a starring role in the newest music video from Daughtry.
The video for the song “September” was shot earlier this month at the Stevens Center of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. The center in Winston-Salem dates to 1929, when it was a silent movie theater. It’s now the primary performance venue for the arts school.
The video premiered online Friday on the music network VEVO. The song is from Daughtry’s platinum-selling album, “Leave This Town.”
Daughtry lead singer Chris Daughtry says the song draws on his childhood growing up in Lasker in Northampton County. Daughtry was a finalist on the fifth season “American Idol,” finishing fourth in May 2006.
