AIDS is the number one killer of women of reproductive age, and Sia is doing something to help stop the epidemic. The Grammy-nominated singer released the music video for her new song "Free Me" and all proceeds will benefit the #endHIV campaign.
The video tells a moving story about the virus. Actress Zoe Saldana plays an expecting mother who's diagnosed with HIV and learns that if left untreated, it could be passed on to her unborn child. The news shocks her and sends Saldana spiraling into a dark void filled with dancers, eventually igniting her own emotionally-charged dance routine. The video concludes with Saldana finding the silver lining in the situation: her healthy child.
YouTube user Elixer OG commented on the powerful video, saying "As someone that has been recently diagnosed with HIV, this song gives me life. This song spoke directly to my soul, telling me to just break through the wall that I built up, and be myself. Nothing else matters. I will be healthy, and flourish. I love you Sia. You are such an amazing woman."
The single will be available for streaming and download on June 9, and all proceeds will go towards the #endHIV campaign, who are working on a new vaccine to cure the disease.
