    Here's the deal

    "Here's the deal, when their heart awakens to the reality of what's going on in the world, they're saying, 'I can do something,'" he said.

    What is the meaning of "Here's the deal" here?

    It's an expression that means something like "let me explain the situation to you."

    Aha, that explains a lot. I had an American Musical Director once who kept saying 'Here's the deal', which was quite confusing as I was always looking for an agreement or contract in the social context.
