(NECN) - It's the song that in a month has become the number one video  in 14 countries.
“I Believe in You” has over 41 million hits on YouTube, three times more popular than Justin Bieber's "All Around the World".
John Michael Williams, musician and filmmaker from Lynnfield, Mass., the man behind the song, joins NECN to talk about its recent success.

“I think that maybe the reason this song is doing so well is, doesn’t everyone in the world want someone to say ‘I love you, I believe in you’,” said Williams.

He said he wanted to make a video where he could spread the message that he wants people to believe in themselves and in love.
