We’ve all received bad news. We’re all struggling with something or someone we love is barely holding on. We hear about hate, terror, and despair. But that doesn’t mean that goodness is gone. Inside, most of us still genuinely want happiness not only for ourselves, but also our family, our friends, and our fellow human beings.
That’s the message of The Piano Guys’ new music video “This Is Exactly What You Need to Hear Today – OKAY:”
The essence of this song is that “No matter what you’ve been through, no matter if you think you’re falling apart, it’s gonna be okay. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow. But we believe that someday, somehow, all things will be made right. And as the Psalm says, ‘They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.'”
The Piano Guys explain: “In the meantime, there are so many more things to hope for and to work at while we yearn for the outcome we want so badly – more gratitude for what we have, more love for those we’ve taken for granted, more faith in ourselves and those we hold dear, and more confidence in a Divine purpose.
“We felt like the best way to spread the message of this song was to supplement our standard classically-influenced instrumental niche with a more pop-driven tune featuring Al’s superb vocal skills. As Oscar Hammerstein once said, ‘It is a modern tragedy that despair has so many spokesmen, and hope so few.'”
