PJIFF has a new music video! The song Believe was written, produced, and performed by Grammy Award winners Randy Spendlove and Polo Jones especially for PJIFF, with vocals by Chris Hodges and spoken word by T. Mac. The music video includes a special version of “Believe” performed by Polo Jones and friends. We hope you are inspired by this song and we encourage you to record a cover of it on your own. Please tag us when you do! Watch on YouTube.
