John Legend shared the visuals for his song “Preach” this morning.

The video captures moments that mirror recent tragedies in our nation from school shootings to police brutality.

Legend posted a teaser of the video on social media challenging listeners to do more than “just preach.”

Sometimes we can get so frustrated by the news and what’s going on and there’s this battle going on in ourselves. Do we become apathetic? Do we become engaged? Do we just talk about it, or do we do something? #CantJustPreach Link in bio.
