Reba McEntire released an updated music video for her 1997 song, “What If.” The modernized video features new clips of essential workers, medical professionals and first responders battling the COVID-19 pandemic.
Penned by Diane Warren, “What If” was originally released by Reba in 1997 as a promotional single to benefit the Salvation Army. Reba’s version peaked at No. 23 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. The track is now available digitally for the first time.
“This song is as relevant today as it was 23 years ago,” says Reba. “That’s the power of a great song and Diane Warren is no stranger to writing great songs. Even though we may not be able to physically reach out with just one hand right now, we can still be there for each other and take care of our neighbors, essential workers and medical professionals. Re-releasing this song and updated video with its message of care, hope and love felt like the right thing to do. Maybe we still can change things.”
