New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Gospel group Zion's Joy! made news headlines last week after Facebook took down the music video for their new single, "What Would Heaven Look Like" - the title track from their upcoming album from Habakkuk Music/InGrooves/Universal. Earlier this month, Facebook flagged the video as "political content" and blocked the video from the social media platform. Extensive media coverage followed, including the New York Times (July 5) and a prime time interview with Fox News Channel's Dana Perino (July 6), and Facebook ultimately restored the video and apologized to the group.

In a statement, Facebook said, "We made an error by deleting the original post. As soon as we identified what happened, we restored the post since it does not violate our community standards and have apologized to Zion's Joy."

"This song is about love and it's about unity and it's about hope," group member Kay Insley told Dana Perino on Fox News Channel. "So we were incredibly shocked when Facebook came and took this song, this message that so needs to be heard right now down. We just couldn't believe it."

Zion's Joy! was founded by Robert W. Stevenson in 2008 and in the decade that followed they have performed throughout the United States, using their powerful voices and tight, rich harmonies to deliver a unique blend of old and new school gospel and contemporary Christian music. The line-up consists of Kay Insley, Camille McKnight, Lia Matthews, Karen Hall, Shekinah Caldron, Lynesha Sweeney, Patrick Taylor, Jeffery Porter and Ramone Griffith.

"We invite people to come be a part of what we are doing," said Insley on Fox News Channel. "And the positivity that we are spreading not only locally, but really trying to pursue around the world. We are actually really thankful for this opportunity. Something that was negative has been turned into a positive and now we are having the ability to get our message out even more now."
