Switchfoot frontman Jon Foreman just released his new film, "25 IN 24" which captures him fulfilling his dream of performing 25 shows in just 24 hours and now the singer explains why he thinks music has the power to unite all people.
The "25 IN 24," aspiration Entertainment, in partnership with lowercase people documentary – follows Foreman and his friends as they embark on a musical journey throughout San Diego, where he plays 25 shows in 24 hours. Clips of the film show that along the way, Forman gains an entourage of people from all different walks of life that follow him on his quest to perform 25 concerts in just one day.
"I wanted to see the community of San Diego come together in a new way like I've never seen before," Foreman told The Christian Post of his decision to do the extensive concert series.
The musician opened up about the power of music to help others connect with God and each other.
"I think that music is an incredible medium. I think that heart is where the transcendence of God finds the temporal of our humanity," he explained. "Music's an incredible example because it disappears the moment you put down the instrument or you press stop on the song. It has this power while it's happening which is powerful, like time travel, you know?"
Adding, "I think in the best way a song can transform you and be transformative. If a song is good enough, you enter the song as one person and you exit as someone else and I think music has done that for me time and time again. That's where I think that my maker speaks to me and hopefully through me – in song."
