I Prevail Vocalist Pays Off His Dad's Mortgage For Christmas

The video might just be the most heartwarming thing we've seen this Christmas.

I Prevail Vocalist Pays Off His Dad's Mortgage For Christmas

2019 has been one helluva year for Michigan metalcore outfit I Prevail: the band released a new album, Trauma, which spawned multiple awesome videos; their cover of Taylor Swift’s Blank Space went platinum; and they completed a killer tour with A Day To Remember and Beartooth. Which is why it's so nice to hear that frontman Brian Burkheiser is now giving back to one of the band's biggest supporters: his dad.

In an Instagram post from his personal account, Brian proudly announced that he was able to pay off his father's mortgage as a Christmas gift to his "pops," who supported him through the toughest times of his career. "At my lowest point when I was ready to leave I Prevail you pushed me to not let go of my dream and fight through the trauma," Brian explains in the post caption.

Fortunately, he caught the entire reveal on video, which may or may not have brought a tear to those of us with otherwise hardened heavy metal hearts. Watch the entire interaction below:
