On January 26, Yahoo! debuted GENTRI's latest music video, "Soldier." This moving new song is "about finding the soldier in all of us," group member Casey Elliott told Yahoo! "[It] illustrates that we must all dig deep and find the fight that drives us. Regardless of who you are or what you do there are things in life worth fighting for–a mother fighting to raise your kids in the best way possible, a fireman putting your own life on the line to save others, an artist pursuing your passion, or a soldier serving your country, you name it.
“It has been our experience that the most worthwhile things in life often require the most effort. You really have to fight for them. You have to have the ‘will of a soldier.’”
For more inspiring music from GENTRI, check out their latest album "Rise" or their debut album "GENTRI."
In tandem with the music video, GENTRI has been releasing touching stories of those everyday soldiers fighting with courage for the good in their own lives. Along with the video, GENTRI posted this challenge on their Facebook page:
"For the past few weeks we've shared stories of remarkable individuals who have overcome personal challenges and who, in spite of them, continue to do incredible things. These 'everyday soldiers' continue to 'dig deep and find their fight' giving everything they have, whatever their 'battle' might be.
These'"Soldiers' found their fight. Find yours."
