Nashville-based sister-rock-trio Everlife today released a brand new, eye-popping music video for their latest single, â€œWhatâ€™s Beautiful,â€ at Ransom.tv. The song â€“ a call to challenge culturally accepted concepts of beauty â€“ is a perfect fit for Ransom.tv, an online portal with thought-provoking music videos, interviews and other pieces to appeal to youth and young adults ages 15-25 seeking meaning and purpose.
Acknowledging the struggle of many young women, the song moves powerfully from questioning and confession to triumph and empowerment.
“We really struggled with the scenes where we barely had makeup and just white t-shirts and bare feet,” says Everlife’s Julia Ross. “We don’t always feel good about ourselves without wearing what we think covers our flaws. But we loved the shots because we are also singing this song back to ourselves.”
“The Ransom team truly captured the vision of our song,” adds group member Sarah Ross. “With all the media hype on physical perfection, many of us are left craving to be someone or something better than what we see in our reflection. We hope to encourage girls and guys to understand that they are not alone in feeling that way, and also we’re hopeful they’ll join us in redefining the meaning of beauty. Each of us are unique, not meant to be in a mold.”
The video, shot mostly in Nashville, was produced by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA), which runs Ransom.tv. Parts of the video were also shot at BGEAâ€™s studio in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Everlife has performed for millions of fans while on major tours with teen superstars Miley Cyrus, The Cheetah Girls and the Jonas Brothers. The Ross sisters â€“ Julia (20), Sarah (23) and Amber (25) â€“ are currently on their third European concert tour in support of their new single and their 2009 EP at the Love Library, which along with their self-titled Walt Disney Records debut, are available at iTunes.
Ransom.tv aims to address some of lifeâ€™s toughest questions with compelling content â€“ in a format custom-designed for the â€œmillennialâ€ generation. The site features videos, culturally relevant articles, testimonials, devotions and other engaging pieces on real topics to encourage a deeper relationship with Jesus.
