Born I’s “In This Moment” takes us on a visual journey, exploring Born's struggles with mental health as he strives to achieve personal freedom and enlightenment. The video was filmed at Kunzag Palyul Buddhist Temple and features cameos from Born’s wife Ayanna and their son. About the song and video, Born says “‘In This Moment’ is a very important song for me, it was written at probably my lowest point in life and it was then that I realized that self love, family, meditation and support were what I needed to be the person I truly want to be in the world.” Born is currently filming a video for each song on his album of the same name, “In This Moment”, to be released as a visual album in 2022.
