Big Daddy Weave Releases Music Video For Current Single "Overwhelmed" In Partnership With World Vision
Big Daddy Weave announces the release of the music video for their current single “Overwhelmed.” Filmed on a trip to Tanzania with World Vision, the video captures the stunning landscapes of Africa and the children whose lives are impacted through the Christian organization. The video includes images of Big Daddy Weave members meeting the children they personally sponsor through World Vision for the first time, as well as documenting the recording in a World Vision school of the Maasai children’s choir heard on “Overwhelmed.” “Overwhelmed” is the fourth radio single from Big Daddy Weave’s latest album, Love Come To Life: The Redeemed Edition, an album containing three consecutive Billboard Christian AC No. 1 radio hits – “Love Come To Life,” “Redeemed,” and “The Only Name (Yours Will Be)” – a career first for the band.
“World Vision gave us an opportunity that opened our eyes,” says Big Daddy Weave lead singer Mike Weaver. “It impacted us in a way in which we’ll never be the same. We made a promise to the little boy in this video that we would tell this story to everybody we could. This video helps us do that in a beautiful and powerful way, and visually shares the overwhelming presence of God that we sing about in “Overwhelmed.”
“World Vision is honored to be partnering with Big Daddy Weave,” adds Lee Broadwell, World Vision Artist representative for Big Daddy Weave. “This montage of our trip to Tanzania is a refreshing reminder of God's unbound creative beauty and a wonderful time with friends! In a spirit of humility, Big Daddy Weave has helped to change the lives of over 10,000 faces like the ones in this video. World Vision is truly thankful for their dedication to children in need around the world.”
Big Daddy Weave has also posted a “making of the video” video at www.bigdaddyweave.com/overwhelmed. Members of Big Daddy Weave are shown in the moments that impacted them most as they tell the story of their journey through Tanzania.
