WITH VIDEO FOR ëCHILDREN OF GODí


Link to Video in Third Paragraph

(Nashville, Tenn.) March 17, 2011 ñ Drawing on real-life experiences near to the hearts of its members and extended family of friends, GRAMMY, AMA and Dove Award winning, Atlanta-based rock band Third Day uses the issue of adoption as a metaphor for Godís love in the video for its latest single, ìChildren of God.î

ìChildren of Godî is the second single from the bandís 11th studio project, MOVE, and features footage of families with adopted children, denoted by t-shirts emblazoned with the word ìadopted.î The families (including that of Third Dayís lead vocalist Mac Powell, who recently welcomed adopted son Emmanuel and daughter Birdie) eventually all don the signature white t-shirts, revealing the idea that weíre all adopted into the family of God.

ìChildren of God,î released to AC radio on December 31, 2010, has accumulated an impressive 58 million cumulative radio impressions. The video was directed by Ry Cox, and can be seen on Third Dayís channel on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/thirddaychannel#p/u/0/V6jO7xhU_Pw.

This new video release is merely the latest item in a very busy spring for Third Day. Long known as the premier live touring rock band in Christian music, Third Day is in the midst of a 40-city tour supporting its most recent full-length release MOVE. The ìMake Your Moveî tour runs through May 21 in West Palm Beach, Fla.
