A new year brings a new single from contemporary Christian singer TobyMac.
And the tune titled "I Need You" has sparked a bit of a social media craze, with some professional athletes singing and dancing for God on their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram platforms.
Super Bowl champion Antwaan Randle El and his family posted a choreographed performance.

The social media buzz around TobyMac's new single is an answer to a personal prayer.
The recording artist told The Christian Post, "I want my music to be everywhere, I want it to be heard. I want to give people an opportunity to enjoy my music, and maybe even hear about this beautiful truth that's in it."
Mac shared his new tune a week ago at a listening party, just outside Nashville.
The touching song lyrics say, "Turn these eyes to my Soul Protector. Break the will of this born defector. Cuz' all I know, all I know is You're my only hope."
He explained the song's inspiration in a news release.
Mac wrote, "I just need U' is where I land time and again after my futile attempts to handle life on my own. I am a born defector learning every day that the sweetest place and the only right place for me, is turning back and falling into the arms of a loving God."
