Alessia Cara Shares Inspiring Message in ‘Scars to Your Beautiful’ Video

The single was originally on ‘Know-It-All’

 

“Scars to Your Beautiful,” the closer to debut album Know-It-All, finally got the video treatment today. The visuals, like the song, are a dedication to self-love: The transgender population, cancer survivors, and others who represent various corners of society make testimonials and cameos in the emotional, five-minute clip.

“I wanted to do this kind of video for a very long time,” Cara says in an interview with Cosmopolitan. “Since we had this song — and since we knew it was going to be a single — I had this vision of many different cinematic shots of different kinds of people. I wanted all kinds of people — young, old, whatever their situation, whether it’s visible scars, non-visible scars — just a bunch of different women, and there are some men in there as well because it can reach out to guys too.”
