Try : Colbie Caillat

The video was first posted to you tube on July 8 and it struck a chord with viewers. It has been viewed  21, 21,269.942 billion and had generated lots of passionate debate.

The song has a powerful message about appearance, acceptance and society expectations of beauty.

I love Colbie Cailat music since her first debut album Coco released in 2007. What I love about her is that she wrote and sings about simple, everyday things in an unassuming manner.  Every song has a soulful swing and sunny tunes which is hard to compare to other artist.

In her new single Try, from the album Gypsy Heart,  She stance against so-called perfection, encouraging women of all ages to embrace what they already have as they strip off the layers of make-up for the camera.

The clip features woman in diverse ages, races and boy type are shown singing along to such poignant lyrics as “When you’re all alone by yourself, do you like you?

One woman also removes a wig to reveal a bald head, and Caillat herself removes hair extensions and fake eyelashes.

The song finishes: "Take your make-up off/Let your hair down/Take a breath/Look into the mirror, at yourself/Don't you like you?/Cause I like you."

The song is a self-empowerment, urging every one of us to look deeper than the surface when it comes to ourselves.

You don't have to try so hard, You don't have to give it all away, You just have to get up, get up, get up; You don't have to change a single thing!

This is such a perfect song for the real world today’s society. We are pressured to live up to other’s expectations.

Ladies and gents, you are amazing and beautiful and should take a moment to watch this video:)

No Photoshop in this world that will make you a better person and tones of make-up. You just have to accept who you are and that you're beautiful and unique in your own way :)

Life is good!
