Nashville, TN (February 5, 2021)
During these uncertain and challenging times when the need for optimism and hope is at record-high levels throughout the world, Capitol Christian Music Group recording artist Danny Gokey has released a music video for his hit song “New Day.” “New Day” which at the time of this release sits at #15 on the Airplay Chart and #16 on the AC Monitored chart is a song full of one thing that we all could use more of…positivity. The video which was shot in a airplane hangar in Smyrna, Tennessee, was produced and directed by Patrick Tohill whose recent work includes for King & Country with Dolly Parton and NF.
Watch the video:
Gokey chose to partner with and bring awareness to Convoy For Hope, a nonprofit that has served food to more than 130 million people in need. Convoy For Hope’s 18-wheel semi tractor-trailer plays a big part in the video to include scenes being driven by Danny, who in fact used to drive a semi prior to being a contestant on American Idol.
The video creatively breaks down the different facets of our everyday lives and in the end pulls them together to give the viewer reason to smile and feel a renewed sense of optimism, faith and belief that today is indeed a new day, and a day that is going to bring them and their loved ones nothing but great things.
“I’ve been looking forward to releasing this song at the top of 2021 to remind people that in spite of all that we have been through over the past year, God’s plan is still full of new mercies and our futures are still bursting with hope! As believers, we don’t have to be subject to our circumstances, we can choose to receive His hope on a daily basis and walk into a New Day!” Gokey continues, “In talking with our friends Convoy of Hope, they really resonated with the message of this song and how it embodies the work that they do. They are able, through their efforts to provide a new start to many who are hurting on so many levels. I’m grateful for their partnership to share the message. ”
“Danny’s music consistently delivers a message of hope and encouragement and “New Day” continues that trend. It’s the right message at the right time for the world to hear and this video will help even more people experience it,” said Brad O’Donnell, Co-President, Capitol Christian Music Group.
“We could not be more thrilled to partner with Danny Gokey on the making of his new single ‘New Day’, a song overflowing with joy, hope and a spirit of generosity,” said Hal Donaldson, President and Co-Founder of Convoy of Hope. “We hope ‘New Day’ will resonate with listeners as we all look forward with anticipation to better days ahead.”
