Switchfoot's "The Sound (John M. Perkins' Blues)" music video is opened with frontman Jon Foreman holding a homemade banner. It has a message read, "This song was inspired by John M. Perkins. Dedicated to his ongoing commitment to love the oppressed and the oppressor. John said it right, LOVE is the final fight."
What follows next is a capture of the civil rights activist sharing his insight about what he believes in and hopes for in life. The band's live performance scenes are also included in this clip.
Taken from their seventh studio album "Hello Hurricane", "The Sound" is aimed to help John spread love to the world which is now full of "hatred." They said in a statement, "In a world where we are defined by our differences, Mr. Perkins' life of service and compassion is a tangible demonstration of what it means to live a life of love. Love is the loudest song we could sing. Louder than racism. Louder than fear."
