Beyonce Releases New Bonus Track – God Made You Beautiful

On the 25th November 2014 Beyonce will be releasing her documentary ‘Life Is But A Dream’ DVD, which will feature this brand new bonus track ‘God Made You Beautiful’. In the song she talks about life after giving birth to her daughter Blue-Ivy Carter.

It’s more of a mellow song that the fiery Sasha Fierce that we know so there has been mixed views, but after a few listens I personally fell in love with it. I feel that it will appeal to anyone that is a new mother or has children that they think the world of. It hasn’t been confirmed whether it will yet feature on her forthcoming album but for me I hope it does. We’re hearing a different side to Beyonce, the mother is shining through. To truly love this track you have to be in a peaceful setting, exerting love and positivity. If you are in your car and on your way to the club then i’d give this one a miss for now.

Listen to ‘God Made You Beautiful’ below:

Screen Shot 2013-10-19 at 17.48.36Over the past few weeks i’ve been working with Starlight Music Academy, a community organisation that has been pioneering innovative programmes designed to develop young people with talent & potential in singing, dancing and acting. Starlight academy are known for helping young talent within the urban communities to excel and reach for their dreams of becoming a singer, dancer or actor.

Trilogy – Got to Dance UK 2012

2 weeks ago I was informed about their most recent project – writing and directing a short film called ‘Surviving in the Hood’, which aims to reach out to young adults who may sometimes doubt their ability to excel within the creative industries. The CEO of the organisation, Shanice Lindsay gave me to chance to attend the screening of the movie and even contribute to their blog by writing a details critique of the 75minute movie. I won’t give too much away but I was definitely impressed with the finished product. The talent of these young members shined through and I know their hardwork and passion will only lead to greater opportunities in life.

Take a look at the trailer for the upcoming short film called ‘Surviving in the Hood’, written and directed by Shanice Lindsay.
