Utah-Tube: The Piano Guys share upbeat message of hope with ‘Okay’


In a video uncharacteristic for The Piano Guys, singer Al van der Beek joins the group, adding vocals to their typically instrumental songs.

The Piano Guys chose the song  “Okay” written by Andy Grammar and Dave Bassett, because they wanted to uplift in a world that focuses on sharing the bad news.

“This is the essence of hope,” The Piano Guys wrote on YouTube. “And the essence of this song. ‘No matter what you’ve been through, no matter if you think you’re falling apart, it’s gonna be okay.’

“Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow. But we believe that someday, somehow, all things will be made right. And as the Proverb says, ‘They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.’”

The Piano Guys are releasing a new album, “Uncharted,” on Oct. 28.  The album includes four songs already released on YouTube: “Fight Song/Amazing Grace,” “Sky Full of Stars,” “Hello/Lacrimosa” and “Jungle Book/Sarabande.” It will also include eight never-before-heard songs.
