Lauren Daigle Releases Video For ‘Hold On To Me’
Lauren Daigle has released a new video for her song “Hold On To Me,” and tackles the concept that life is not always what it appears to be in the new clip. Daigle steps behind closed doors to become an observer of some of the stories that don’t make it to the public eye in the video, directed by John Gray. She follows a couple through their everyday lives building a family, witnesses a man behind bars, observes three generations of women in a hospital tackling a health crisis, and watches a child stuck between their parents’ volatile relationship.
“Hold On To Me” embodies a message of hope that no one is alone in their struggles, and over the next several months, Daigle will highlight and raise funds for several organizations that tie into scenes depicted in the video through The Price Fund. All proceeds from this fundraiser will be divided evenly among the organizations to aid in their incredible work.
