See Beautiful Video

Video by India Arie

India Arie is the first artist to be featured twice as a See Beautiful's. We can't help it. She sees and creates so much beautiful. It's that simple. Take her song, Video, for example. How can't you see beautiful with lyrics like these:
  • "I ain't the average girl from your video. I ain't built like a supermodel. But, I learned to love myself unconditionally, because I am a queen.
  • "I ain't the average girl from your video. My worth is not determined by the price of your clothes. No matter what I'm wearing I will always be India Arie."
  • "When I look in the mirror the only one there is me. Every freckle on my face is where it’s suppose to be.  And I know my creator didn’t make no mistakes on me. My feet, my thighs, my Lips, my eyes, I’m loving what I see."
  • "Am I less of a lady if I don’t where panty hose? My momma said a lady ain’t what she wears but what she knows…"
Do we need to say more? We think the message is pretty clear, and she sings it more perfectly than we can write it, so go ahead and enjoy the Video:
