Lukas Forchhammer Shares Tribute Video To Dad

Lukas Forchhammer frontman of the band "Lukas Graham" shares a music video "You're Not There" which is his emotional tribute to his late father, Eugene Graham, who passed away 4 years ago. The Danish band has now shared a new lyric video for the track that's a deeply touching tribute to the song's subject.

The deeply touching clip, plays like a slideshow of the frontman’s family photo albums set to the track’s moving lyrics: “You’re not there to celebrate the man that you made / You’re not there to share in my success and mistakes / Is it fair you’ll never know the person I’ll be / You’re not there with me.”

Eugene said: “‘You’re Not There’ is a song to my father and in this lyric video I try to describe the loss I feel. RIP Eugene Graham!”

“You’re Not There” is the band's third single in their self-titled debut album. Like other songs off the LP — including breakout single “7 Years” — the latest offering was inspired by lead singer Lukas Forchhammer’s father Eugene.
