Joshua Bassett is taking a stand and making several statements about acceptance in his self-directed “Just Love” music video.
The 22-year-old High School Musical: The Musical: The Series star unveiled his new single and its accompanying visual on Friday (September 22).
Lyrically and visually it preaches the healing power of love while shining light on at-risk populations.

“The church doors are closed / to those who need most / the love that’s inside,” Joshua sings on the opening lines. He displayed that literally in the music video as the doors to a place of worship were closed on a same sex couple.
The video also shines light on issues including suicide, abuse, homelessness, human trafficking and more. However, it ends with a positive message about the future.
“It ends with us,” Joshua promises in the final moments of the video.
It’s a message that is mirrored in the song’s chorus: “What if we just / love / love / love,” he sings. “Am I askin’ too much? Oh / too many have lost their lives and / too many tears we’ve cried ’cause / we couldn’t seem to see the light / but what if we just / love?”
Although the music video displays a tense family situation, Joshua also made sure to let fans know that it was not autobiographical and that he had nothing but love for his parents.
Earlier this month, a cute video from Joshua‘s childhood resurfaced online!
