Johnny says the video was, "Inspired by someone who told me to keep my faith during difficult and dark times. It's about meeting someone who changes your life in an instant, in a positive way that makes a difference in your life... and you want to say just, 'Thank You.'  Also, it represents love and working together, to make it through tough times, by keeping your faith, and sprinkling your blessings to others."
