The creative process behind “PSALM 118” involved collaboration with fellow musicians, including Jammal Graham and Shuan Jones Jr. Together, they explored new approaches that transcended the traditional church setting. The aim was to create visuals that communicated gratitude beyond the confines of a church, emphasizing that thankfulness can be experienced anywhere.
