Someone will always see you as beautiful, whether or not you see it yourself.

Beautifully shot in Buffalo, NY, by Green Tater Productions (Doug Cashell, Ryan Crowley-Hughes, Theodore Selden) the new music video gives the song a fun mysterious story that leaves open for viewers the question of what *really* happened. Actors Guy Ventoliere and Sevin Ceviker bring the song to life.
The lyrics were written with a critical eye to the perception of Western culture's exceptionalism when viewed through a lens of ancient global history. It cynically points to a dystopian future where it's safer to "stay in." The song was written in 2006. Prescient? You decide.
"Beautiful was originally inspired by a kindergartener who was struggling in school, and the author wanted to convey the message of self-confidence that the young child would likely struggle with in later years. It morphed into the message that while you may not fit into society's construct of beauty, someone will always see you as beautiful, whether or not you see it yourself.
Message aside, it's a dance tune. The club beat and groove will stick with you. A Donna Summers-style intro leads to a heavy dance disco groove reminiscent of the '70s but modernized for today. Enjoy "Beautiful"!
