Watch the “God Only Knows” Video:
“2020 has been a year that none of us will forget, and through these times it’s given us a new perspective about life, but also about music and the role that it plays. Music has been one of the things that has comforted and helped provide healing to hurting people all over the world and for us. It feels as though the message of ‘God Only Knows’ rings truer now than when we wrote the song. Yes, ‘God Only Knows’ what we’ve all been through in 2020, but despite all of that, we believe there is still a kind of love that ‘God Only Knows.’ To the Billboard Music Awards for the nominations and for continuing to recognize the power of music in such desperate times as these, we say a heartfelt ‘thank you very much.’ We’re most grateful!” —Joel and Luke Smallbone
