Recording artist, actress and producer MORIAH releases “You Mean The World” today (June 9) at digital and streaming outlets globally from The Fuel Music via The song is the second of several singles set to debut in the coming months from the multi-artist A New Heaven And A New Earth project that is slated to premiere winter 2023 / 2024.

Writing, producing and engineering “You Mean The World,” MO¯RIAH also enlisted Andrew Bergthold (We The Kingdom) to play stringed instrumentation. The resulting, beautifully crafted song of love envelopes concern for the world and everyone in it.

“When something or someone is vulnerable and unprotected, the first responsibility is to care,” says MO¯RIAH. “I couldn’t have written these lyrics if my heart didn’t ache over the ways I’ve not taken that responsibility seriously in the past. The phrase ‘you mean the world to me’ is typically something I’d say to my family or a child. This is the same delicate care I want to attribute to the earth and its Creator.”


Clothed with the sun
Crowned with the stars
So who can say
Just what you are?
You mean the world (3X)
You mean the world to me

Along with the single, MORIAH collaborated with up-and-coming director Phynley Joel to capture a companion video for “You Mean The World” in both Rome and Nashville, which is slated to release later this month.

Reflecting on when she was first asked to participle in this A New Heaven And A New Earth project, MORIAH reveals, “At the time, I was having honest conversations with some of my closest creative collaborators about the hole in our community of songwriters. One of the few things that unites every person on this planet is that our feet are all planted on the same spinning miracle. By nurturing nature, we’re caring for each other.”

MO¯RIAH’s single follows the debut, A New Heaven And A New Earth track from GRAMMY® nominated, Dove Award-winning Building 429 lead vocalist Jason Roy. His “It’s All Yours” released May 12 and was named on the Apple Christian Best New Songs list as well as featured on its New in Christian and Rise Up curated playlists.

Additional songs have been produced for the A New Heaven And A New Earth project by well-known Christian artists that felt led to participate, responding to the call to write and record a song on taking care of Creation. The songs, collectively covering rock, pop, hip hop, R&B, indie, folk/ Americana and more musical genres, are being released as singles monthly through November 17, 2023, with a full A New Heaven and A New Earth album slated to launch this coming winter.
