Get out your kleenex! FLETCHER has just released the powerfully emotional music video for her latest single “Princess“!
“I wrote ‘Princess‘ two years ago when many of the women around me were feeling lost or weak. I wanted to empower them to feel hopeful and not helpless,” the 22-year-old rising singer told TIME. “We are all going through something, but experiencing the highs and the lows makes us who we are. “What if Cinderella had to save herself?” is a message I’ve always needed to hear.”
“The three characters in this video were inspired by a few of my friends in college. One was kicked out of the house for being gay, another left home because their parents didn’t understand their gender identity, and another dear friend almost lost her battle with bulimia,” FLETCHER revealed. “It was very powerful producing “Princess.” I cry most times I perform this song; it’s definitely the most personal record I’ve ever released. I think of my friends who inspired it. I think of all the other girls around the world who are experiencing the very same struggles. Seeing the actors bring those stories as well as their own stories to life was overwhelming.”
“Princess” is featured on FLETCHER‘s debut Finding Fletcher EP, which is available on iTunes and all other digital platforms now!
