The accomplished singer, songwriter, husband, and father of 10 children, John Waller has released his new single "What My Father Does" at digital and streaming outlets everywhere. The rousing anthem leading into 2021's Father's Day weekend, the song introduces the recording and video debut of Waller's 16-year-old daughter, Sophee Waller, and will be featured on Waller's sixth full-length studio album, A Family Thing, slated to release this fall.
Teaming with longtime friend/video director Bill Sammons, John and Sophee traveled to Rehoboth Beach, DE to record a live video performance of "What My Father Does" along with a full studio orchestra.
"This uplifting anthem showcases a positive, all-embracing message and the pair combine fantastic vocals for a showcase of spirit," says Parade in the feature premiere of the video. "The video focuses all of this energy with a beautiful portrayal of love and support."
"I've made quite a few videos over the years and I must say, this was the most enjoyable experience for me thus far," shares John. "Just watching Sophee radiate on camera and getting to interact with her as my daughter and capture the real, true emotion of how I feel about her as my beloved child brought me so much joy! I think people are going to really fall in love with this song and particularly with my daughter Sophee!"
"With a voice that 'makes most heads spin,' the aspiring artist adds levity to her father's vetted vocal strength," says American Songwriter in its audio premiere of the song earlier this week.
"I've spent most of my life on the road with my dad," adds Sophee in American Songwriter. "I love the scenes of it, and experiences I've had growing up. Being in the studio with my dad, it really feels like what I am supposed to do. And it was just a lot of fun, a good bonding experience for us."
Building from an ethereal, piano-driven ambiance into a triumphant, powerful expression filled with a full string orchestra and anchored by father/daughter harmonies, "What My Father Does" poetically captures the inspiring truth of the gospel. The song and the entire new album revolve around God's unequivocal and undeserved love. "My sins don't dismiss it, and my achievements don't warrant it," says John. "I see that more clearly today than ever, and the freedom in that is overwhelming. It's how I love my children and it's how God loves His. It's what my Father does."
The new song follows Waller's first new radio single in over two years, "But God." The song, initially released from Radiate Music this spring, will be featured on the upcoming album that will be released independently.
Known for such inspiring hit singles as "Crazy Faith" (featured in the hit box office film War Room), "While I'm Waiting" (featured in 2008's No. 1 independent film Fireproof), and many more, Waller has continually used his gifts as a singer and songwriter to inspire, educate and encourage people across all walks of life.
