"Wildfire" is the title track
and first single from singer/songwriter Jessica Crawford's five song EP.
The track is a reflection of Jessica's personal experience with true love
- the love of God. Just as wildfires burn out of control, consume
everything in their path and bring new life to forests, the untamed love of
Jesus Christ does the same. "There is nothing like experiencing the
love of God for yourself," says Crawford, "It is the love the world

passionate love of Jesus through music, ministry and missions work via her
non-profit called Love Out Loud (www.loveoutloud.mobi).Her passion is to travel around the country
leading worship, sharing songs she has written and speaking about the lessons she has learned. She
just can’t keep quiet about the love of God and is on a mission to share that love with

Tennessee, Ornellas created a dream team to complete this project.
"Wildfire" features a tribal sound with acoustic drums, gang
vocals and a war cry hook. The kick drum pulses like a heartbeat throughout the
song and by the time the drum breakdown hits, you'll want to be dancing and
The official music video was filmed and
directed by Rebecca Friedlander, a multi-talented videographer, musician,
potter and speaker. Friedlander and Crawford combined forces to create a
vision for the video, which was then produced by Friendlander through prayerful
creativity and honed skill. Shot in two locations just outside of
Nashville, Tennessee, the video was filmed in two days and features the beauty
of nature as the song story unfolds ending in a bonfire celebration.
