    Does Carrie Underwood’s New Music Video for “See You Again” Give a Christian Message?

    Every week, I go through the “Girl Talk” section of Project Inspired and look for those seeking advice and council. I want to help answer some questions you may have about living out your Christian life and walk of faith! We want PI to be a safe place where you can ask questions.          

    Join the conversations in the Girl Talk forums here.

    This week I chose to discuss Carrie Underwood’s new music video for “See You Again,” not only because I admire her as an artist, as a follower of Jesus and also as a bold light in the industry, but because the message of the song is so inspirational!

    Underwood performed at the CMT music awards on June 5, 2013 as a tribute to the victims of the Oklahoma tornadoes. She also donated some tour royalties to the Red Cross for the victims. The music video for “See You Again” is for those who experienced loss and anyone who misses their loved ones.

    At Project Inspired, we talk a lot about “secular music” verses “Christian music” and if Christians should listen to worldly music. I think that it is possible for Christian artists to sing non-Christian songs and still be Christians. For example, there are Christian authors, filmmakers and other professionals who may not necessarily be preaching through their art.

    I think you still definitely can give an inspirational and Christ-filled message through your work. Also, in Underwood’s case she is giving hope to those who experienced loss and tragedy, which reflects her faith as well.

    I do not agree that Christians should be promoting sex, drugs and drunkenness–I think that’s the opposite of what we should promote. Sure, people have made mistakes, and if they turn from darkness, then that’s a testimony. Yet if someone claims Christ but promotes a completly ungodly message, then that’s a contradiction.

    PI readers, what do you think about the Underwood’s lyrics and the message of “See You Again”? Do you see Christian imagery, and do you also hear the hopeful message of being reunited with your loved ones?

    Watch the video below:

    I love the different scene collages and quick imagery with the family members hugging, being reunited and running into each other’s arms. I love how you see real, down-to-earth people engaging their loved ones and how you can relate to their emotions.

    The song reminds me not only of missing someone here on earth and getting to be with them again, but also of a reunion in heaven when we go to be with the Lord. The song could have a double meaning of “seeing you again” not only here, but also in eternity. What do you think, PI girls?

    What is your favorite scene or message in the music video, and why? Do you think it is a more Christian music video? Comment below!
