Side FX and Kim Cameron, with the help of other artist, has a brand new release, "Beautiful", that will have you shaking your head & dancing to the beat throughout the Summer of 2017.
Remaking the Christina Aguilera song "Beautiful" in a modern Deep House beat with a positive lyrical message, Billboard recording artist Kim Cameron set out to create a collaboration of independent artists from across the globe and genres, to come together in one song, to share one message: we are all beautiful in our own special way regardless of our differences or personal situations.
Set to the luscious backdrop of the Miami Beach Botanical Gardens, Cameron plays the role of a modern woman, who at first is upset about the results of her pregnancy test. Throughout the video, students from Guitars Over Guns (GOGO), where Cameron mentors and teaches vocals, are seen trying to cheer her up and make her realize she is Beautiful .
“I wanted to take a familiar song and work with artists to turn it into something of our own with the right messaging,” explained Cameron.
While the song’s message is about realizing inner beauty and all the positive things nature has to offer, Cameron also hopes to shine light on the importance of afterschool programs, where a lack-of, heightens teen pregnancy, drop-out rates, risk of drug usage and other negative behaviors. Programs such as GOGO, provide mentorship through the arts, where inner-city and at-risk youth find a safe space and loving environment, while partaking in arts education activities, which have proven to help increase academics, graduation rates, and other life-skill developments.
Artists who donated their time and creativity to the project included Najasism, from Atlanta, a pop dance artist. His fans voted his Best New Artist and Best Artist Website in the Atlanta Underground Music Award. X-Factor's Mary Ann Van Der Horst, who just released her first single 'Deep Down,' added her beautiful vocal mix. Moran Levi, a pop rock vocalist also provided vocals, who began her professional singing career in Croatia. Stillamess, from New York, was the hip hop artist on the track whose lyrics inspired his manager and creator of the Roc Runna Radio Show, Big Vegg, to join in on the recording. John DePatie, the top guitartist in Hollywood, California provided the guitar solo and vibes to this new release. Robb Deux, who knows first hand about being raised on inner city streets, put all these artists' sounds to life. And, the cover art was created by Miami artist Chy Tea Shaulin.
ALL Proceeds from the song will benefit Guitars Over Guns. Currently, the organization has programs in Miami and Chicago, but expansion is soon to occur in New York, Los Angeles and South America. Direct donations are encouraged at: https://www.classy.org/checkout/donation?eid=94360
