Today, Ten Three Records recording artist Orlando Rodriguez is unveiling the highly anticipated music video version of his hit single, "You're There," which was shot on location in Chicago. The eclectic singer/songwriter called on the talents of producer/director Lennard 'Street' Rosses of Street Alert Films to bring his vision for the video to life.
"Working with Orlando Rodriguez and Ten Three Records was an absolute pleasure!" declares Rosses. "I am most thankful for their ability to trust me with this music video. Never have I heard a more passionate and timeless song that resonated within me. The melodic, spirit-filled intensity will grab you from the very start."
"You're There" is a smooth and bluesy pop ballad with a message of grace. As a radio single, the song debuted on Billboard Magazine's Most Added chart in the Gospel category, and immediately shot up to #80 on the venerable magazine's Gospel Airplay chart.
"I wrote 'You're There' after observing how my grandmother responded when my grandfather died," says Rodriguez. "I was amazed at how she stayed strong despite facing the challenges of losing her husband," Rodriguez explains. "The lyrics ('You're there / even widows cry') were birthed as I watched my grandmother lean on her faith in Jesus Christ during that time of grief."
"I hope that everyone who sees this music video is reminded that God is in the finer details of our daily lives," Rodriguez continues. "I also hope that it serves as a reminder that God is there, regardless of what we are facing. We can trust in Jesus to bring us through any situation."
Rodriguez is currently touring in support of his debut solo project, Turn the World Off, which was produced and mixed by hit-maker Chuck Alkazian (Percy Bady, Desmond Pringle, Christina Aguilera) at Pearl Sound in Canton, Michigan, and released to retail through Ten Three Records.
