“You've gotta be patient. God's got your back. Worry is the opposite of faith, remember that."

Inside the Jacobs Family Home on Boys Town's Omaha campus, the youth have been spending their free time during quarantine remaking themselves into a family band.

The group, aptly named 'Jacobs Child,' decided to have some fun and spread happiness by writing and performing a song about #COVID19. The song was such a hit when it was shared around campus, the all-girl group knew they had to take it to the next level by creating a music video.

The group planned, filmed and edited everything with the help of their Assistant Family-Teacher Amelyka. Did we mention they also wrote and recorded the entire song themselves, too? The music video is an example of the resiliency of our kids and their ability to shine no matter the situation. Watch the music video here:

 

The music of Jacobs Child caught the attention of Boys Town friend and Emmy Award-winning Actor Jacob Young. After hearing the song, he wanted to add a fun spin to it and surprise the girls. We connected him with the group via WebEx so he could say hello, share some stories and hear the new spin on the song.

Here is a short clip from their call and the updated music video (which the girls love, but they still prefer their original version for their many fans)!

 
 

The message they share is important and something for all of us to remember right now.

So blessed, so blessed to have each other, 'He Ain't Heavy Father, He's My Brother'.

From all of us at Boys Town, Jacob Young and the entire Jacobs Family Home/Band,

Take care of one another, don't fret about the rest. Above all else, God Bless.
