About the Video
You can watch the video above on Youtube now. The video starts with a two second introduction from the music label then the music starts. This video was shot with material that was submitted by fans requested from Jonathan and edited to include each fan’s interpretation of the song. Notice that Jonathan was not very selective with the fan submissions that was used in the video. You can see people from different ages, colors, genders, and locations.
There is a fair showing of men, women, and children in the video but women were more frequent. Some people did more than that just sing along with Jonathan, people were dancing as well. Dancers of different styles: freestyle, praise dance, hip-hop, and even ballet. It is great to add that to the video because it make the video even more personal for those who like to express themselves through dance and performing arts.
Intertwined in the video is Jonathan doing a roof top performance in a black hoodie with gold writing which is of his brand signature and another screen of him in a black hoodie but with a brown trench coat and guitar. It’s great that the content video focuses more on the fan submitted portion than the artist himself. Because when you listen to a song the first thing you want to do is sing along with the artist but this allows you to see other people as they enjoy the song while you watch and ultimately join in with them.
It’s the little things that count
Let’s talk about some details that I want to point out to you about this video. Some people use their camera and held it up while performing the song. Others used their webcam to submit their videos and then you have camera phone submissions. The narrow screen shot angles and even bunny filters show the videos used with Instagram and snapchat videos.
My favorite screen was from a young girl with a horizontal message that stated finished all college tests with a 3.8 GPA and just received a scholarship. What a great story that she shared with us! And if you noticed they showed multiple times the “little drummer boy” with a red shirt that read, “beat cancer”. That message right there is what the song and video is all about.
Overall, the video is a great way to show how blessed we are and that it is not because of luck but it’s because of God’s love. If you want to see more songs from Jonathan McReynolds then click here.
