Christian pop artist Zach Williams received some publicity and celebrity love yesterday when comedic actor and action star Chris Pratt used Zach's single "Chain Breaker" in a homemade video. You can watch the clip below.
Best known for his roles in Parks and Recreation, Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World, Pratt has historically been very vocal about his faith, going against the grain of Hollywood stereotypes. Despite Starlord's stardom, the universe-saving, T-Rex-fighting action hero also enjoys the simple things in life, sharing a video montage of himself and his five-year-old son, Jack, living what Chris calls "#farmlife." The video features Chris and Jack feeding sheep and petting goats, with Williams' music as the soundtrack. Pratt ended the video with a slide of Psalm 126:2 which says, "Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing. Then they said among the nations, 'The Lord has done great things for them.'"
Pratt wrote, "Missing home, missing the farm, missing the boy, missing the island. So I'm sharing this video as a way to express my gratitude for all the blessings in my life and to entice any of you watching this who may feel unease or anxiety with the state of our world to just breathe, slow down, go outside, find something not man made and give it a good look. A leaf. A bug. A cloud. A sheep. As William Cullen Bryant says, 'Seek communion with her visible form....go forth under the open sky and list to nature's teachings.' What a beautiful creation over which we've been given the responsibility of stewardship."
Pratt gave a shoutout to Zach Williams and credited the song to him. He admitted, "I didn't get his permission to use it. Hope that's alright. Big fan Zach." Then added jokingly, "Please don't sue me for all my sheep."
"Chain Breaker" is Zach Williams' first single from his 2017 solo debut album of the of same name. The song is Zach's personal testimony of freedom in Christ, and has become an anthem for many who have experienced freedom and peace in their lives through Jesus. The album recently landed Zach nominations in the 6th Annual We Love Christian Music Awards, with voting open now (click here).
