Hear Us


Gospel / Inspirational

Artist Statement

Hear Us is a prayer concerning issues we face day to day. A mother without a job trying to feed her hungry daughter, a middle class man battling battling with drug addiction, a young lady whose homeless sleeping under a tree looking for signs of survival are all signs of a silent cry of help, just when church group in the park is have a prayer day and blessings begin to take place with such individuals, just to be invited to a night of worship featuring Maurice Griffin singing "Hear Us," that which relates to all people of color and race, an art of good vs. evil to keep hope alive.

How it fits into contest

The Music Video shares many examples of how dark powers can be at war in our lives; but in the end, the video creates how through the love of Christ, good always win. The battle begins when a setback occurs or a pre-existing condition is in place where our flesh is either satisfied or filled with lack of confidence, unable to handle life with true purpose. Prayer is presented in the video as is a weapon of warfare; it support faith in giving hope to those who stress over daily obstacles. The freedom of choice is presented in the video when a man decides to turn down drugs in attempt to turn his life around. A concert is presented in the video showcasing how God connects the dots in everyone lives, though we all have silent cries, it's through an art of spiritual worship we can unite and create a sound of public honor, declaring the help we need to survive this spiritual battle of good vs. evil. God's mystery in this music video is knowing I have access to the whole armor of God. This video showcases how good (prayer and faith) can activate our protection (the whole armor of God) through the Word (God through Christ Jesus), giving us the key to winning A Spiritual Battle.
