Billy Gilman Drops Powerful New Music Video for ‘The Choice’

Billy Gilman

We previously reported that former country child protege Billy Gilman had united 18 of the biggest names in country music to sing on his song ‘The Choice.’ With the song, Gilman is teaming up with the organization Soles4Souls to bring shoes to kids across the globe who don’t have any. The artists are donating 100 percent of the proceeds from the song’s digital downloads directly to the cause. This week, Gillman released a music video to further the reach of the charitable single.

Incredibly, one song download translates to one pair of shoes for a child in need. You won’t see any celebrity cameos in the music video aside from Gilman, but country fans will hear some very familiar voices, including Alan Jackson and Reba McEntire — the first two voices heard on the track — as well as Keith UrbanLeAnn RimesRodney Atkins, Amy Grant, Vince GillMontgomery Gentry, Steve Holy, Wynonna Judd, Richie McDonald, Ronnie Milsap, Craig MorganKellie Pickler, Diamond Rio, Randy TravisJosh Turner and even Kenny Rogers. Just try to pick them all out!

The video shows a young boy — who seems to have everything he needs and more — donating his fiery red Chuck Taylor shoes in a shoe drive. The footage then follows those shoes as they make their way onto a plane, into an African village and onto the feet of a child in need.

According to the video, half of the people in the world do not even own a pair of shoes and 300 million of them are children. Gilman and his country crew are working toward donating 500,000 pairs of shoes through the sales of their song. The song is available for download on iTunes.
