G.R.L. have just unleashed their brand new music video for their latest single “Lighthouse“!
The ladies – Lauren Bennett, Paula Van Oppen, Natasha Slayton, and Emmalyn Estrada – dedicated the visual in loving memory of their former bandmate Simone Battle, who died of a reported suicide at age 25 earlier this year.
“We rehearsed the other day without her, and it’s just weird. But she was so passionate about singing and this group, and I feel like we’re keeping her memory alive by being together,” Emmalyn, 22, told People. “But right now we’re focused on the song and the positive message overall, about being together in hard times. We’re taking everything else one day at a time.”
“We learned so much from her,” Lauren, 25, continued. “In the video you can see her passion for performance, and you can see her strumming along to the music in the beginning. It’s us showing that she’s still part of the group. She’ll always be part of this group.”
