Watch Leon Bridges’ Uplifting New Video For “River”

It’s hard to believe Leon Bridges is only 26 years old with the amount of heart and soul that comes through his music.  Today, he’s released his video for “River”.

Bridges explains in a statement about the Miles Jay directed video: “The river has historically been used in gospel music as symbolism for change and redemption. My goal was to write a song about my personal spiritual experience. It was written during a time of real depression in my life and I recall sitting in my garage trying to write a song which reflected this struggle…I want this video to be a message of light. I believe it has the power to change and heal those that are hurting.”

Everyone has their own struggle and this song might just help you through yours.  Check it out below.
