“Fly Like An Eagle” is Trini Lopez’s very first official music video. In the fifty years as an international superstar and musical icon, with over a dozen hit records, he has never had the opportunity to express his music through the medium of film or video. But here is that “first” – the premiere of the Trini Lopez music video, and featuring a stellar comeback performance!
Singing an amazing cover of Steve Miller’s classic hit, “Fly Like an Eagle”, director Chip Miller, shot Trini at numerous locations throughout Southern Califiornia – from the Santa Rosa National Mountains in La Quinta, to Salvation Mountain in Niles, to Palm Springs, to LAX (Los Angeles International Airport) in LA. And Trini delivered the goods as can be witnessed here in his debut video performance of the first single off his recent CD, “Into The Future!”
In 2016, the video tested successfully on Youtube, and was prepared for television broadcast. Beginning March 2017, Trini’s new video will commence airing on FNX Channel (First Nations Television), and on their all music video network, AUX. Future television plans include MTV Europe and numerous Spanish audience networks. In the late Spring 2017, the full concert will be completed and also air on FNX Channel. Dates to be announced
Currently, Trini can be seen in, along with a host of musical guests, on the 2017 PBS Kingston Trio special, “The Kingston Trio Celebration: An All-Star Concert”, joining guests: Timothy B. Schmit of The Eagles, Al Jardine of The Beach Boys, Barry “Eve of Destruction” McGuire (The New Christy Minstrels), The Limeliters, Josh Reynolds (son of Trio’s late Nick Reynolds), Sana Christian, Henry Diltz (The Modern Folk Quartet), and Shari Belafonte, along with a rare appearance by Trio co-founder, the legendary Bob Shane. The concert was taped at the Avalon Theater in Hollywood and is seen on KVCR TV, and dozens of other national PBS affiliate networks.
Trini still tours and sounds great, as can be evidenced on our Kingston Trio PBS special, and especially here in this music video, a wonderful new chapter in a colorful career.
