SEATTLE, Wash., Aug. 19, 2010 – Hawk Nelson has launched its newest music video, “Shaken,” produced by, an online ministry of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA).

For one week, “Shaken” will premiere exclusively to Hawk Nelson fans before going public. The video will be available on Hawk Nelson’s Facebook page ( – only fans who “like” the page will be able to unlock the video. Fans will also have the opportunity to join the band and Samaritan’s Purse in helping to feed 1,000 kids through its “Get Shaken” campaign.

“We love partnering with organizations and individuals that share our heart to impact the lives of others to Live Life Loud,” share the members from Hawk Nelson. “Working with and the folks at Samaritan’s Purse is an absolute honor. ‘Shaken’ is a personal song - we had a blast making this video with and love the end result.”

In 2008, Hawk Nelson went to Haiti to visit the Hands & Feet Orphanage, where the band was moved by the people they met, especially children. “Shaken” was written following this visit, and the band says the song has even greater meaning after the country’s devastating 7.0-magnitude earthquake earlier this year. Frontman Jason Dunn was able to visit Haiti in February with international relief organization Samaritan’s Purse, where he says he saw how Haiti had been truly “shaken.”

Open my eyes and help me see there’s a world outside of me.
I’ve been shaken from my head, on down to my toes.
Lord use me, take me where you want me to go.

(Lyrics from “Shaken”)

Along with the subject matter of “Shaken,” Hawk Nelson has devoted this year to the motto from its most recent album, “Live Life Loud.” Providing various avenues to get involved, the band is now working with Samaritian’s Purse to feed 1,000 kids with the “Get Shaken” campaign.
