John Legend just released the music video for his latest song "Preach" and it's a powerful one.
The video starts off with John laying in bed next to his wife Chrissy Teigen and as the video continues, he tackles a bunch of very important topics.
He addresses topics like mass shootings, police brutality, and family separation at the U.S. border.
He posted in the description of the video, "The idea behind the song is that sometimes we can get so frustrated by the news and what's going on and there's this scatter going on in ourselves. Do we become apathetic? Do we become engaged? Do we just talk about it, or do we do something?"
