As if the song itself didn't pack a big enough punch, the video for 'Prayers' is poignant and emotional.
At the end of last week, Good Charlotte released 'Prayers', a poignant track directly addressing the culture of 'thoughts and prayers' from their upcoming album 'Generation Rx'.
Today they've unveiled the official music video to accompany 'Prayers', and it packs a powerful punch.
The video profiles a real-life friend of the band and his parents as they work hard and contribute to their community even though they are under constant threat of deportation by I.C.E. Despite everything they are up against, they remain optimistic and proud to call themselves American. It brings humanity to a polarising and contenscious political battlefield- a battlefield that real people are being caught in the middle of.
Watch the video for Good Charlotte's 'Prayers' below:
Good Charlotte are donating the cost of making this video to RAICES, The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services. RAICES is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency that promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees in Texas.
Good Charlotte's new album 'Generation Rx' is set for release September 14 through BMG and MDDN.
