Pink is using her music as a rally cry for equality, and she’s taking her six-year-old daughter Willow along for the ride.
Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken
Grammy award-winning singer Pink has just released the video for the track Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken and it’s a pared-back anthem honouring the suffragettes, the #MeToo movement – and her own personal struggles.
This latest Beautiful Trauma album track, originally written for the soundtrack of the film Suffragette, is ultimately about standing up for what is right, Pink says.
“The movie is about the suffragette movement, which is women’s right to vote,” Pink said of the song in her documentary On The Record.
“You have to fight for what’s rightly yours which is rights and respect and love and kindness and compassion and you have to be willing to die for it. These women were.”
Pink’s eldest child, daughter Willow, features in the black-and-white clip, and it’s further confirmation that she and husband Carey Hart are determined to raise a strong, vocal and principled girl.
“We don’t change. We take the gravel and the shell and we make a pearl. And we help other people to change so they can see more kinds of beauty,” Pink told her daughter during a heart-to-heart about self-acceptance last year.
She later repeated the conversation at the VMAs, as part of a passionate call for compassion and diversity.
Pay it forward
Apart from being an inspiring speaker and mindful mum, Pink’s a UNICEF ambassador. She’s keen to align the release of Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken with the important work the non-profit does, bundling up all the things that are most important to her in one package.
“All children should be able to grow up strong and healthy, with the opportunity to reach their full potential,” Pink told UNICEF. She’s calling on fans to celebrate her new song and video’s release by donating to UNICEF’s efforts.
“UNICEF works to save and protect children and support moms and families around the world. By providing healthcare, clean water, education and more, UNICEF is strengthening communities and empowering children to grow up healthy, happy and full of hope for a bright future,” the organisation explains.
Bright futures, rights and respect seem like some of the very best global goals to be pushing for and we love it that Pink’s very visibly including her daughter in this mission.
