John Legend has always been socially aware and is sharing his frustration with the current state of the world in his powerful new visual, Preach.
Directed by Dominique DeLeon, the video begins with Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, in bed together. The EGOT winner then exits the bedroom and finds political unrest at his feet.
“Heaven knows I’m not helpless / But I’m only human / Can’t see the use in me crying / If I’m not even trying to make the change I want to see,” sings Legend in the chorus, encouraging listeners to become the change they want to see in the world.
