I felt that I wanted to highlight that we as people-  we as humans know that God has given us the tools to overcome the giants.  I am labelling giants as anything that coming after you, anything that is trying to put you down, anything that is stopping you from entering into

“Yes and sp you see in the video, we have an image of a giant and we will see on it ‘My Giant,’ because you can personalize it, Whatever your giant is, God has given you tools and weapons to overcome it. God has given us the ability to overcome. So what I am hoping the video inspires others to rise up and don’t feel like you just gotta take it and be beaten down. You can rise up and draw the line will no longer be suppressed. For that as a nation, that’s huge. We need to rise up and draw the line and say no more, we will make a difference. ”


The song and video fall under the Roots and Honor label. Also, under that label is a new single titled, “Make Me Holy” by Alida Wright. She was also a guest on the show and spoke about her journey to the release of this single. [

“That song came out of my quiet time actually. It was one Sunday morning before church., it was raining pretty steadily like it does here in Belize sometime. it was a nice cool morning and the words just all of a sudden flow. I’ve been praying and reading my Bible and singing through some old hymns actually when it came to me. and just the importance as a worship leader, what ever spirit I have in me, I’m putting that out there into the atmosphere. And that morning I just wanted God to make me holy so that I can stand before the people and help usher them into the presents of God.”
