And you couldn’t ask for a more heartfelt debut.
The single is called “Would You Still Love Me?”
In the video, that question is posed by a young man in the process of being married to a lovely woman, a part played by singer-songwriter Gloria Kim.
Brian says the song’s concept came as he was boarding a plane heading to a good friend’s wedding. Specifically, it came when he spotted an elderly couple.
“The wife was in a wheelchair and it was evident that she couldn’t speak or move on her own. As drool dripped from her mouth, her husband wiped it away,” Brian writes on his website.
“In that moment, I was confronted with the reality that I was getting ready to witness the wedding of my good friend and his bride who are both young and full of life. They would soon commit to loving each other for the rest of their lives without a clue as to the circumstances the future would bring.
“As I continued to observe the elderly couple, in that airport terminal, I began to think of how at one point in their lives they stood at the altar, both full of life, but somewhere along the line… something happened. It is that experience that birthed “Would you still love me?”

Brian finished in the Top 24 on Season 10 of The Voice. From Tulsa, Okla., and a former student at Oral Roberts University, he was 23 when he auditioned for the show.
