MICKEY GUYTON RELEASES NEW SONG “I STILL PRAY”
“I STILL PRAY” MUSIC VIDEO OUT NOW
GUYTON FEATURED IN NEW EPISODE OF SESAME STREET SEASON 53
NOVEMBER 7 2022 (TORONTO, ON) - Mickey Guyton’s latest inspirational anthem “I Still Pray” is out now along with accompanying music video. Written by Guyton with Tyler Hubbard, Ryan Daly and Steph Jones, “I Still Pray” aims to unite via the universal language of prayer.
“Sometimes when I don’t know what to do or how to help, I pray,” shares Guyton. “Before writing this song, I’d been feeling kind of overwhelmed with all that’s going on in the world and how, at times, it feels like we have no control. And we don’t,” she continues. “I don’t have the answers. I just pray. So, I wrote this song from that place and hope when people hear it, it brings them some inspiration in the moments when it’s needed.”
“I Still Pray” follows Guyton’s recently released “How You Love Someone” and “Somethin’ Bout You.” These songs are the latest since her GRAMMY-nominated 2021 debut album Remember Her Name.
Guyton also appears in the brand-new season 53 premiere episode of Sesame Street on HBO Max. The Texas-native joined Abby, Big Bird, Cookie Monster and all the Sesame Street friends to perform a song about the importance of community. Watch HERE
