Toni Childs "Because You're Beautiful" from the V-Day documentary "Until The Violence Stops".
"Because You're Beautiful," the original song featured in the V-Day documentary "Until The Violence Stops," will be available exclusively for download at the iTunes Music Store (itunes.com) beginning Tuesday, January 18. Composed by Toni Childs, David Ricketts and Eddie Free, the song received the 2004 Emmy award for "Outstanding Music & Lyrics."
In early 2003, V-Day Founder/Artistic Director and Playwright, "The Vagina Monologues," Eve Ensler met Toni Childs at V-Day Kauai. Ensler was already a big fan of Toni's -- the impact of Childs' music on her life has been profound and a lifeline. By night's end, Ensler found herself asking Toni to write an anthem for "Until The Violence Stops." "Because You're Beautiful" is the result.
"Until the Violence Stops" is a documentary that follows the extraordinary grassroots impact of V-Day in five international communities while exposing the pervasive and cultural forms of violence that women experience all over the world.
Writing again from the core of her soul, Toni brings the raw beauty of love, most importantly self-love, to this anthem for all women as a reminder that we are beautiful. Believing that women are suffering from the not-enough syndrome (not pretty, slim, smart enough) inspired her to write from a place of acceptance.
"My 'aha' moment came when I realized that if violence was really going to end against women, women needed to first stop the violence they inflict upon themselves," says Toni Childs.
All proceeds from the sale of the song will go to V-Day, the global movement to end violence against women and girls.
