John Legend Addresses Police Brutality And Other Social Issues in New Video “Preach”
Grammy-winning singer, songwriter John Legend has released a power-charged video to accompany his amazing vocals on the track “Preach”
The video which was directed by Dominique DeLeon opens with John Legend and Chrissy Teigen asleep in bed. Legend is then stirred awake, ultimately walking into a high school gymnasium to find kids fleeing an apparent shooter. The AJR Films release also tackles police brutality, immigration, and more.
“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,” Legend said in a press release. “Do we become apathetic? Do we become engaged? Do we just talk about it, or do we do something?”
