In a time when the world needs it most, Thomas Rhett has released an uplifting all-star collaboration titled, "Be A Light." The country singer is joined on the poignant ballad by Keith Urban, Reba McEntire, Hillary Scott and Chris Tomlin.
The song, written by Rhett alongside Josh Miller, Josh Thompson and Matt Dragstrem, offers a message of hope and encouragement in these difficult times. "In a world full of hate/ Be a light/ When you do somebody wrong/ Make it right/ Don’t hide in the dark, you were born to shine/ In a world full of hate/ Be a light," they sing in the powerful chorus.
"I wrote this song last year," Rhett shared on his Instagram Live. "This song was really just about being a light in a dark place; being an encouragement to people. We weren't supposed to release this now, but I really felt like the song needed to come out today. I hope it puts a smile on your face in this crazy, crazy time."
Rhett continued on to reveal that proceeds from "Be A Light" sales will go to benefit the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund. This fund goes towards members of the music industry who are currently suffering from the coronavirus and those out of work due to the pandemic. Rhett adds, "Know that your money is going to a great cause."
