Music Video: Johnathan Celestin - Be-You-tiful
Since featuring R&B artist Johnathan Celestin last summer, his music video for "12 Steps", an emotionally-charged ballad, has gone on to receive over 215K views on YouTube. Starting off 2015, Johnathan changes direction with an uplifting song about being comfortable in your own skin and spreading positivity. Watch the exclusive release of his new single "Be-You-tiful" above.
The single delivers a message with the same purpose as classics like "Black or White" and "Unpretty", urging you to realize that you are who you are: "it don't matter to us who you love, hold on to your love" - its lighthearted disposition and upbeat production ease the absorption of such a significant and relevant topic. Not only is this a single, Johnathan truly hopes to affect change with his "My Own Be-You-tiful" campaign, a call for his audience to truly embrace who they are and make no apologies for it. The fun and inspiring video was directed by Theshay West, a talented director with over 6.5 million views on for his music videos on YouTube.
Johnathan Celestin is a singer, songwriter, and musician from Virginia. He draws inspiration from a variety of artists from Lauryn Hill to Eric Clapton. He soon followed his dream to New York City where he has been featured in publications such as The Columbia Spectator and the New York Times for his broadway performances. His debut EP "...and the rolling stone fell in love" can be found on iTunes.
