“This is Kai, an expecting mother, a daughter, a friend,” Julianne narrates the beginning of the music video as the screen shows a wide shot of Zoe in a doctor’s office. “She’s about to learn HIV is taking hold in her body, attacking her immune system and if left untreated will be passed on to the baby growing inside her.”
Zoe uses body movement to tell a compelling story as Sia’s vocals are overlaid singing, “Peace may come / I hope it won’t take long / Just a faith I cannot see / Bring me home / I’m in there all alone / Just me and my melody.”
Text that reads, “HIV/AIDS is the NO. 1 killer of women of reproductive age worldwide,” overlays the video as Julianne gives a final statement of solidarity. “Go to ENDHIV.com to support a promising new aids cure. Together we can #endHIV.”
To date, #endHIV’s current campaign has raised $50,100 of their $1 million goal.
“Free Me” is available for purchase Friday.
