(LOS ANGELES, CA) April 19, 2023 –Two-time Grammy-nominated gospel recording artist, VaShawn Mitchell, just premiered the brand-new music video for his new hit single, “See the Goodness” featuring gospel veteran, Donnie McClurkin. Being hailed as “the faith anthem of the year”, the song is already making a major impression around the world and it’s only the beginning!
Directed by Darnell Cauley in Detroit, MI, it was very important to Mitchell how this particular song would be portrayed. “That night was so electric that it was important to me that we capture the worship experience as it was happening. The presence of God was so palatable that no one left the same way they came.”
Mitchell, who was recently named as St Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital newest brand ambassador, hopes that the message of the song brings healing and comfort to those that need it most.
