The Valley Shows A 'Happy' Face
Erik Fearing, worship leader at First Baptist Church, appears to be calling for help from a higher power as he directs the “Happy” music video on Main Street. He is – sort of. He’s yelling up to power company employees Andy Hall and Jerry Gordon who are in a bucket truck with the camera. In the bottom photo, Fearing, probably fearing for his life, rides on the back of the “Snookymobile” with Mary Lou and Snooky Williams for a tracking shot up Main. The Watermelon Music Festival will premier the “Happy” video on Thursday, July 31, at 7 p.m.  Pre-program music will begin at 6:30. The "Happy" song written by Pharrell Williams has gone viral  all over the world.  The Water Valley version features a lady bug, stink bug and a snow man dancing among the town folks.
