There’s been a lot of bad news in the media these days, but the Piano Guys have a new song to change all of that.
It’s called, “Okay,” and the message is simple: “It’s going to be OK.”
“We watch the news. We see the tweets, the Facebook posts. The YouTube comments! We hear about hate, terror and despair,” their website writes.
Media can make the world look bleak. They’ve given themselves this job description, in part because there’s a darker side on the surface of human nature that feeds on fear and cynicism. But deep down, we are beings of light. And in the end, since darkness is merely the absence of light, light will inevitably overcome dark.
This is the essence of hope. And the essence of this song. “No matter what you’ve been through, no matter if you think you’re falling apart, it’s gonna be okay.”
The video, released earlier this week, shows people smiling, with the OK hand sign.
So when you’re having a rough week, or the news cycle seems to never let up with stories of sad news, think of this song. “It’s gonna be okay.”
