Star in a Music Video with Rachel Hale
We are so excited to announce that this year’s Global Finals teams have the unique opportunity to be featured in a music video from one of our very own Destination Imagination alumni, Rachel Hale!
Rachel is a singer and songwriter from Prescott, Arkansas and was a featured contestant on Season 12 of “American Idol” as a Top 20 finalist competing in the “live” shows. Billboard ranked her performance of Grace Potter’s “Nothing But Water” as one of the top moments of the season. Rachel has shared the stage with music legends Peter Frampton and Ricky Skaggs, and opened for stars including Tracy Byrd, Joe Nichols, Joe Diffie and Chris Cagle.
She just released her new single, “Promised Land,” and wants to create a music video featuring our very own DI Global Finals teams.
Rachel said the song is an anthem of hope written to help people move into their destinies, so what better way to celebrate the end of the DI season and all of our teams involved. Global Final participants will be the first to watch Rachel’s music video for “Promised Land,” which will debut during the Global Finals Season Finale on July 24.
She was a Destination Imagination participant from 6th-8th grade and competed twice at Global Finals.
“Destination Imagination taught me how to find creative solutions to obstacles that I face,” said Rachel Hale. “It provided the space I needed to take risks, make mistakes, and grow. While competing, I learned how to value others on my team. Thanks to Destination Imagination, I am a more well-rounded individual, and I am forever grateful for this organization!”
“Promised Land” is available on Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon Music and all major music platforms.
And if you love to cook or whip up a yummy treat, you can check out her cooking series, “Hale’s Kitchen,” on IGTV. Rachel offers bite-sized videos on quick and easy ways to whip up yummy shakes, smoothies, appetizers and more.

All video submissions are due by Thursday, July 8 and MUST follow our requirements in order to be considered. The first 125 submissions will be accepted for consideration. DI’s video production team, staff, and Rachel Hale will select their favorites to include in the music video.
