Sia Lives Vicariously Through Young Karate Master In “Alive” Video


Sia’s entire “Alive” music video centers around a child martial arts prodigy.

The song was originally meant for Adele, but the “Hello” singer rejected it. Sia couldn’t imagine leaving the song on the cutting room floor, so she’s taking this, along with songs other artists like Rihanna passed on and will feature them on her upcoming record, This Is Acting.
