It might be Alessica Cara's birthday today (July 11), but she's giving us a gift.
Cara premiered her new music video for the empowering self-love anthem “Scars To Your Beautiful.” It features every day people going through struggles feeling like they don't fit in. The real stars of the video give inspiring messages throughout the clip.
“Often times, the world both directly and indirectly tells us that we shouldn’t be happy with ourselves if we don’t fit certain beauty standards. Scars to your beautiful is a reminder that beauty isn’t only one look, shape, size, or colour,” the message at the end reads. “It isn’t even always tangible. It comes in an endless amount of forms and we need to recognize that."
Huge props to Cara for celebrating her birthday by celebrating each other's differences and enforcing the message that that's what makes us beautiful.
Cara also performed the song on Elvis Duran and The Morning Show:
