Seven years ago, a man from Bland County was hit by a car, his leg was severed and his life immediately changed.
These days that same man, Jack Morgan, is in a worldwide music video.
The song is called "Love is Stronger," sung by Grammy award-winning Christian artist Jason Crabb. His song is up for a GMA Dove award.
It's the story of a young girl with Down's Syndrome and her father, played by Morgan, who goes to war and returns with one leg.
I sat across from Morgan for this interview. You wouldn't know that he's an amputee unless he told you. He did and so I asked him directly, "OK let me ask you, which leg?"
Morgan, who looks a lot like the comedian Howie Mandel, said ''[My] Left, this is computerized."
Morgan is a preacher, motivational speaker and now actor, who plays the dad in the video.
Morgan's on-screen daughter teaches him about life, love and grace.
Seven years ago, Morgan learned for real when he was crushed between two cars.
"I wasn't knocked out, didn't go unconscious, didn't go into shock. God really gave me clarity. I was able to climb back up the hill without the leg and got help."
So how did Morgan get cast in a music video? His wife, Lora, saw the casting call online and told her husband to apply. He beat out hundreds of other amputee applicants and was offered the job. D
uring our interview, Morgan stood up and swung that fake leg around like a yo-yo. I suspect his sense of humor helped land him the gig.
"I do that on the dance floor and people freak out'' said the father of two.
The video was shot in Birmingham, Alabama, in two days. In the final hours, the director asked Lora Morgan if she'd help.
"And so I'm the doctor giving [Jack] the leg in the end and coaching him through the therapy session when he got the prosthetic on. It brought back a lot of memories for us."
Roman White directed the "Love is Stronger'' video. White has worked with superstars Carrie Underwood, Justin Bieber, Blake Shelton and Taylor Swift. Now Jack Morgan, the accidental actor, is on that list.
"Be clear it's not robotic, not bionic. I don't know that I'm average. They call me robo pastor sometimes!"
The GMA Dove Awards are set for October 15th in Nashville and can be seen in 65 million homes.
