Drake White is continuing his mission to inspire, releasing the fan-focused music video for his song “Power of a Woman” today (12/15) exclusively on PEOPLE.com.
The poignant clip was born from White’s Power of a Woman Campaign, which he began in October alongside his wife, Alex, and is named after his song “Power of a Woman.” The campaign asked fans to submit stories celebrating the powerful women in their lives, many of whom are featured in the music video.
“It doesn’t matter if it is the waitresses at my favorite greasy spoon Wendell Smith’s (restaurant) or the vice president of the United States, there’s just so many powerful women out there,” White shares with PEOPLE.com. “I just wanted to glorify women in a song.”
Written by White, Lindsey Hinkle and Kelli Johnson, “Power of a Woman” celebrates the strength of women everywhere, and White wanted the song’s music video to do the same. After coming up with the idea for the campaign with Alex, White reached out to his fans and they responded in kind, submitting stories and photos of themselves, friends, and family members.
The campaign received over 300 entries, and women highlighted in the newly released video include members of the armed forces, healthcare workers, teachers, cancer survivors, generations of family members and more, with many holding up signs declaring, “I am a powerful woman.”
“Power of a Woman” is one of multiple songs White has released from his forthcoming album, which is expected early next year. Other new releases include “Hurts the Healing,” “Angel Side of You” and “Giants,” which he’ll be taking on the road as support for Whiskey Myers on their WHISKEY MYERS IS A COMIN’ TOUR beginning in February.
