On Monday July 11th, coincidentally the day of her 20th birthday, Alessia Cara released the music video for her song, “Scars To Your Beautiful”. The song is a liberating anthem about loving and accepting yourself for who you truly are, despite all of your flaws. The video features all different types of people- young, old, male, female, transgender- all telling their stories. This video is profoundly beautiful and thought-provoking, and sends a powerful message.
I consider Alessia to be one of the most respectable artists of this generation because she is constantly using her music to promote positive messages. She is not afraid to stand up for what she believes in and go against mainstream beliefs. The young pop-star is the perfect role model for young people in this day and age, and I commend her for it.
