Worship singer/musician Jimi Cravity ends the year on a powerful high note with his video for “Beacon.” The visual finds Cravity, the latest signee to Capitol Christian Music Group and joint venture label sixstepsrecords, playing with light and shadows as he delivers uplifting lyrics like “You are the beacon of heaven” that was inspired by his son’s battle with cancer.
“My song ‘Beacon’ is a song of triumph in the midst of shadows,” he explains to Billboard. “It’s a bold declaration of a coming reality and a rich history. I wrote this as a prayer for my son, Britain, as he was in the hospital battling cancer.”
He adds, “It’s a song for anyone who needs hope. The video depicts the power of light in the midst of shadows.”
Scroll through YouTube and Cravity pulls from a mixed bag of influences that span pop, urban and gospel, even covering several Coldplay cuts like “Fix You” and “Sky Full of Stars.” With an EP due Jan. 6, he will debut “Beacon” with a performance at the Passion Conference at the Georgia Dome starting on Jan. 2.
