Christian music’s two-time GMA Male Vocalist of the Year and multiple GRAMMY Award nominee, Brandon Heath rolls out his latest music video to top web outlets this week. “The Light In Me,” whose corresponding single is currently impacting radio, can now be viewed at HearItFirst.com, KLOVE.com and Gospel Music Channel on air and online (watchgmctv.com) and more.
The video, which premiered on HearItFirst.com Aug. 17, was produced by Wes Edwards (Ruckus Films) and shot at Percy Priest Lake in Nashville, Tenn. In keeping the song’s theme, the video storyline follows a young boy as he learns to pursue the light inside of him, even when it means standing alone.
The song, gaining momentum at radio, is currently No. 15 at AC Monitored, No 9 at AC Indicator and No. 14 at CHR. This is Heath’s second single from his chart-topping third studio project,
Leaving Eden. The first single, “Your Love,” spent an impressive eight weeks at No. 1 on the AC Monitored chart earlier this year. The highly acclaimed album, released Jan. 18, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Current Contemporary Christian Chart and climbed to No.1 on iTunes’ Christian Albums chart.
