quoting Chris van der Merwe:

I haven’t brought out an edit for a while now. This is just some fun sessions I’ve captured over the last few months.

Some clips were filmed in Shanghai, China and some in Johannesburg & Cape Town, South Africa. Hope you enjoy it.

The song is “Too Bright To See Too Loud To Hear” by Underoath. Sometimes we are not sure what the way is back Home because we are so lost in the addictions of this world, but God always makes a way back to Him… One can never be too far gone. Peace.
