Parson James's 'Waiting Game' Featured on AMERICAN IDOL; Watch Video for 'Temple'

Soul-pop artist and songwriter Parson James entered the Top 10 of the official iTunes pop charts with his debut The Temple EP. The EP, out now at all digital retail providers, features his current single "Temple" as well as the stunning ballad "Waiting Game" which was featured last night on FOX's American Idol. "Waiting Game", also available at all digital retail providers, was selected by Idol judge Keith Urban and was sung by finalist contestant Trent Harmon.

Parson James has also recently premiered the official video to his current single "Temple." Directed by Olivia Malone, the simple yet inspirational video represents the struggle Parson James faced as a teen, growing up in the south as a bi-racial gay man.

"I tried to please people for so long and alter who I was as a person to fit in when in realty all I needed to do was learn to love myself. The message is celebratory and is ultimately depicting a coming to realization of being proud of who you truly are." Parson explains of the video. "With casting I wanted to make sure I had a completely diverse cast trans/queer/gay/people of color celebrating who we are as human beings and being absolutely proud of that. The video takes you through a completely dark and lonely place and ends with a complete moment of self-love and true pride. Which can apply to any and everyone who has felt the need to change for another person/people."

Watch the official video for "Temple" below, and get the single on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify now! Plus, watch Parson James perform the single live on NBC's Late Night With Seth Meyers here.

The Temple EP is available now on iTunes and Spotify.
