You would believe you were about to watch a movie as the opening credits of this Demarco Films production begin to roll amid sounds of police sirens, news reporters, a heart rate monitor flat-lining, a crying (screaming) woman and what appears to be a dead body on the ground.

But, this is not a movie! It is the everyday reality in many of our local communities. The perfect picture presentation of a people with No Hope, which is the new single from Faith Pettis’ upcoming album titled “King.”

“The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry our their dream.” – Les Brown

As individuals of all walks of life, from young black men and women to older white police officers, mouth the words “no hope” it becomes evident that this video is sort of a double entendre. If taken literal all we see is lifeless body, but what the body represents is so much more. It is a metaphor for dreams and visions that have died too soon. Perhaps from the loss of life through senseless violence or illness, maybe even through the loss of one’s identity but ultimately it all equals the loss of hope.
Fortunately, Faith reminds us that it doesn’t have to end that way. He shares with us his own journey from hopeless to victory through Christ Jesus in this dope anthem which will no doubt cause you to “put your hands up” and praise God as you watch the video
