ApX "Sirens" Video Impacts Cleveland Congregation

Here's an awesome email we received this week from a fan in Cleveland:
A friend of mine from high school is a pastor of an African American Baptist church with a congregation of about 200. Back in November, you mentioned that a fan, Kelly Davis, had created a video for your song, "The Sound of Sirens." When I watched that video, not only did it have a powerful and profound effect on me, but I immediately thought that would be something appropriate for Martin Luther King Day.Editor's Note: First of all, we are humbled that God would allow us to be a part of that! Second of all, we should clarify something that Kelly Davis is like "Jake from State Farm" in that commercial — well, she's a guy. Ron's not the only fan who presumed Kelly was a lady based on his first name, but we can attest that Kelly is a man, as can his wife, Karen. :)
A month ago, I showed it to my pastor friend and he said it was going to play it the Sunday before Martin Luther King Day. I attend his Bible studies on Wednesday nights, and the Wednesday after Martin Luther King Day he mentioned during Bible Study that he played that video during both services on Sunday morning and it had quite an impact on the congregation.
After Bible study, a woman came up to me and said the video influenced her in such a way that she wanted to gather with several believers on her street and pray for her neighborhood.
So I just wanted to let you know what influence your song with Kelly's video had on a congregation. Feel free to share this email with Kelly and also let her know that I think she has an incredible talent with video, putting together images to make a powerful song of yours, "Sound of Sirens," even more stirring and heartfelt in its message. Every time I watch that video and listen to your words, I am deeply moved by it.

If you haven't seen Kelly's video for "The Sound of Sirens," here's the link:
There's a one-minute prologue. It's works well with the video, but if you're short on time, you can go straight to the one-minute mark for the beginning of the song.
