Today the full video debuts on YouTube, click below to see the whole video.
“We wanted to make a video that was so filled with childlike joy, that we couldn’t help but smile while we watched it,” shares Pat Barrett. “Joy is best realized not when we talk about it, but when we experience it, and we wanted to create a video that gave a taste of that. I honestly still can’t watch it without laughing. In life, there are so many things that are completely outside of our control. However, where we find our ‘peace’ and ‘hope’ and ‘joy’ are not one of them. We each get to decide that. In the greatest times of uncertainty, maybe…just maybe…that is the most powerful decision we can make. This song reminds me of that. And I hope it does for everyone who hears it as well.”
If ever there was a time for a song like “Heavenly,” it is now. The lyrics encourage the listener to adjust his/her thinking and focus on the things that could never be taken away.
