Just about the time when the world needs a message of hope and peace, along comes Reba McEntire to give us just that.
Country’s fiery redhead just released her latest video for “Back to God,” a song from her upcoming two-disc gospel album, Sing It Now: Songs of Faith & Hope, out Feb. 3.
“I’ve been asked a lot lately about why now was the right time to release this song,” said Reba in a statement. “I think it is always the right time to give it back to Him because we seem to mess things up on our own. We all need to just love each other more unconditionally, without judgement because we can’t do this on our own.”
In the video, directed by Mason Dixon and filmed at Tulip Street Methodist Church and Mount Olivet Cemetery in Nashville, Reba narrates through the song as images of funerals, memorials and sad moments are interspersed.
“You gotta get down on your knees, believe / Fold your hands and beg and plead / You gotta keep on praying / You gotta cry, ram tears of pain / Pound the floor and scream His name / Cause we’re still worth saving,” Reba sings in the song chorus.
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
Watch the beautiful video for “Back to God.”
