At a time when violence rages throughout the world—from Israel to Ukraine to Iraq—Reba McEntire has released a video for her song "Pray for Peace."
The video, which the country singer released on her Facebook page Monday, features peoples' pleas for peace and tranquility.
"The idea to write the song 'Pray For Peace' came to me last year as I was walking on our place in Gallatin," Tennessee, McEntire explained. "For days, I'd sing 'Pray for Peace' over and over. It wasn't until several months later did the other parts start to fall in place. Some, not until we got into the studio to record it."
The singer and actress called the song "a gift from God," writing that she has never worked on a track as long as she did on this one.
"It went from a bass drum, fiddle and singers to guest artists singing with me, adding more instruments and even a choir and a bagpipe," she continued.
"It's an act of perseverance, prayer, hope, fellowship and mostly love."
The video has received wide attention, with more than 200,000 shares in 24 hours. It has also been liked more than 155,000 times and has more than 22,000 comments.
"Thank you all so much for commenting on the song and video," McEntire commented Monday. "I pray it touches your heart as much as it does mine."
