At the end of the day …. “OKAY …. By The Piano Guys …. “!!


~~September 20, 2016~~ 


This Is Exactly What You Need to Hear Today

I follow The Piano Guys faithfully.

I’ve even seen them perform live.

It was an amazing experience.

Scrolling through the pages of my ‘internet’,

I noticed some incredibly awesome news.

They have a new CD on the way.

Yesterday, they posted a new video.

I hope you enjoy it!

Story behind the song

We’ve all had that phone call. That email or that message. That conversation.

Bad news.

We’re all struggling with something – a debilitating weakness or illness. Or someone we love is barely holding on. We watch the news. We see the tweets, the Facebook posts. The YouTube comments!

We hear about hate, terror, and despair. But just because what sells, what goes “viral,” or what gets attention may try to drown out the good in the world, it doesn’t mean that goodness is gone. Just because choruses of controversy and scandal shout louder than quiet symphonies of service, it doesn’t mean that inside most of us still genuinely want happiness not only for ourselves, but also our family, our friends, and our fellow human beings.

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.”

Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow. But we believe that someday, somehow, all things will be made right.

And as the Psalm says, “They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.”


In the meantime, there are so many more things to hope for and to work at while we yearn for the outcome we want so badly – more gratitude for what we have, more love for those we’ve taken for granted, more faith in ourselves and those we hold dear, and more confidence in a Divine purpose.

We felt like the best way to spread the message of this song was to supplement our standard classically-influenced instrumental niche with a more pop-driven tune featuring Al’s superb vocal skills.

As Oscar Hammerstein once said:

“It is a modern tragedy that despair has so many spokesmen, and hope so few.”

Please share this song with someone you think might need it today.

Thank you!
