Album Produced by Multi-Grammy Winner Steve Berlin

(Memphis, TN) – The Memphis-based soul powerhouse Southern Avenue recently announced the release of their third full-length album BE THE LOVE YOU WANT along with the album’s feature track “Push Now.” Today, Southern Avenue share the official music video for the song; a light-hearted happy-go-lucky visual that showcases the band’s personality and incorporates family members from the entire Southern Avenue team.

“We wanted the video to be fun, colorful, and alive. What better way to do that than to make it a raging party filled with super-cute kids,” says Southern Avenue frontwoman, the song’s co-writer and mom of two of the video’s young stars, Tierinii Jackson. “The energy of the track was definitely matched by our adorable friends. It’s LIT!”
