touch hearts. “Jay DeMarcus, my producer, brought this song to me,” Crabb shares. “I immediately knew I had to record it this song – I knew it would touch people because it touched me. My wife Shellye was going through some very hard times when this song came into our lives – it helped me and I knew it would help others.

The song later came to life through a video directed by award-winner Roman White. Debuting nationally on USAToday.com, the video stars Ashley DeRamus, a young lady living with Downs Syndrome, bringing awareness to those living with the disease.
“This song shares a universal message of hope and encouragement,” comments Crabb. “We’re all going through something and this song reminds us that love – of Jesus, of our families – it’s stronger than anything and will pull us through. I am honored that I was chosen to sing this song.”
The album, available in stores and online, boasts all original artist recordings from some of the brightest, biggest, and best artists who are performing songs of faith notable for their uplifting lyrics.
