John Legend’s video for “Preach” is an intense plea for change in America because of issues like police brutality, racism and the demonizing of immigrants. The clip starts with Legend and his wife Chrissy in bed and later he goes to church and calls on God for help to mend the society’s struggles. The video is the first of its kind to use the Donate button so that viewers can give money to Free America. Legend explains,
“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?”
