Derek Hough Wrote 'Hold On' Almost 5 Years Ago

Derek Hough Wrote 'Hold On' Almost 5 Years Ago

Derek Hough stopped by Build Series to promote his brand new single, “Hold On”, in New York City on Wednesday (November 1).

The singer and entertainer chatter with Billboard just as the video dropped this morning, and revealed that he had written the song five years before.

Derek has teamed up with the Movember Foundation for the song.

“I got very emotional about it [with the recent suicide of Chester Bennington] and I just immediately called my friend and say, ‘Hey listen, I really want to record this song and redo it and create a video and go out there and talk about this.’”

Derek adds, “It seems to be something that’s becoming more common and, especially with men. When I actually dove into the statistics of it, it was even more staggering. 500,000 men a year are taking their own lives, and three out of four suicides are men. It just got me motivated, it got me inspired, and it got me to talk about this.”

Derek Hough Brings Awareness To Mental Health Issues With Debut Single 'Hold On'

Derek Hough Brings Awareness To Mental Health Issues With Debut Single 'Hold On'

Derek Hough keeps running in his new, moving music video for “Hold On”.

The entertainer, who teamed up with the Movember Foundation for the song, opened up about the song and how it’s bringing awareness to mental issues in men.

“After experiencing firsthand the effects of suicide in my extended family, I became curious of the human condition and how we could possibly reach a point where we felt that there was no hope,” he writes. “The thought of someone suffering in silence, feeling alone and feeling like there is no way out breaks my heart.”

Derek continues, “This video represents that isolated loneliness we can often feel…especially in the wake of traumatic events. But in the end it’s about reaching out for help as well as reaching out to help others. When we connect as human beings, we become stronger, and are able to share and let go of the burden one might feel.”

“If you or someone you know is going through a difficult time, don’t be afraid to reach out. Life is definitely worth living.”

Pick up Derek‘s debut single, “Hold On”, on all digital retailers now.
