Sia surprises fans with brand new song ‘The Greatest’ which has a powerful LGBT music video for Orlando victims.
The artist of the hidden face and interesting wig is known for her envelope-pushing music videos with powerful messages. And her latest project is no different.
Imagery appears to honor the victims of the Orlando shooting at the gay nightclub Pulse, which claimed the lives of 49 people in June.
‘The Greatest’ features Kendrick Lamar and the video features Sia’s regular muse Maddie Ziegler.
The video opens with an image of bodies on the ground followed by a message that reads #WeAreYourChildren. Dancer Maddie has rainbow stripes painted on her face.
A total of 49 dancers reportedly participated in the video — one for each Orlando victim. Sia is openly bisexual, tweeting in 2013 “I’m queer. I say queer. I prefer it to all other labels.”
Although the clip hasn’t been officially labeled an honor, the video and its lyrics clearly note the singer’s dedication to the cause and her desire to pay tribute to those who were lost—a tribute that she has pulled off beautifully.
