Jesaiah's first single Wildfire will drop April 3rd. “The words in Wildfire really speak to me.” says Jesaiah, “The song is about a girl who has been hurt in a relationship and her hesitation to allow herself to be open to another one. I think we have all gone through that.”

The music video will be released later this spring. Jesaiah brought on some of Hollywood's finest to produce the video. Director Andrew Greenbury (Hall Pass, Hairspray, The Pacifier), Cinematographer Mark Eberle (Seabiscuit, Joe Somebody) , and Producer Nan Swartz (Paranormal State, Bowling for Columbine, Basketball Wives LA) . Together, the team used its creative powers to bring Jesaiah's vision of Wildfire to life. Sparing no expense, the team filmed Jesaiah's video using HD digital, 4K and Drone technology.
