Hamilton, Ont. Singer/songwriter/actress and mother of four, Queen Cee, wants girls to love and believe in themselves. As the director and founder of Be-You-tiful Girls Club, a self-esteem initiative she started three years ago to empower girls and promote multiculturalism and positive self-esteem, she recently embarked on a music video project.
“We strive to shows girls from all backgrounds, ethnicities, social and economical status that it is okay and it is great to celebrate their unique qualities, looks, gifts, talents and have their voices heard. We want them to know that they have a mind, voice and a face like no other, and that it is beautiful and that is important and valued; but they must first realize this within themselves,” says Queen Cee.
For the video, Queen Cee worked with 14 girls from the community, taking them into a recording studio for the first time to record “Love & Believe in Me”, a song written by Queen Cee. The project included a red carpet launch for the video, which was supported by Hamilton, Vision 'N' Vibe Promotions, Storehouse Media Inc. and SACHA Hamilton. Check out the resulting video here. Congrats to Queen Cee and the Be-You-tiful Girls!
