When it came time for recording artist JEĀN CLĀUDE to put out his next single, he knew he wanted to be able to give back to the community. With "God of Grace" (premiering exclusively on Billboard below), he's trying to do just that.
On the brand-new track, CLĀUDE establishes the hardship the world is currently experiencing, but reassures listeners through powerful lyrics and sweeping melodies that in the end of it all, we will pull through. "Hearts are broken, chips are falling," he sings in the chorus. "Mends are taught to be rough."
The song is also meant to literally help where it can. The star tells Billboard that he is donating 100 percent of the song's proceeds to the Recording Academy and its charitable foundation MusiCares' COVID-19 Relief Fund for artists. "I wanted to release this single and help as many other artists as possible. I encourage everyone to find ways to be of service during this uncertain time," he explains. "Find beauty in solitude, and be the light they want to see in the world."
