It revels in the power of music to rejuvenate and unite us all. As Reggie says, “it’s a universal language, we all can speak.”
Musically the tune is a little bit Country, and a little bit Rock & Roll. The band is excellent, with some cool funk guitar playing along with Reggie’s Gospel-tinged melody.
