Here's a portion of the news release below:

The true-to-life story, put to song by legendary Christian music icons Bill & Gloria Gaither and Country music superstar Larry Gatlin tells the story of a man who makes a startling connection upon missing his home-bound flight. Point Light Pictures, LLC was brought to the task of making the story come to life. While the music video has been displayed at numerous events - live concerts, Gaither Homecoming Tour before thousands in attendance, Pastor David Jeremiah's "Turning Point" rally at Phillips Arena, and many churches - it has not been viewable online, until now. 

Until March 1, "Excuse Me, Are You Jesus?" has been unlocked as a selection of the 34th Annual Telly Awards People's Choice Awards on YouTube.
