Bibi Bourelly Releases Poignant “Riot” Video: Watch

Bibi Bourelly just released her video for “Riot” today, and unfortunately, the visual seems painfully fitting in light of the recent tragedy in Orlando.

All in all, the black-and-white clip is pretty straight forward: it’s a compilation of footage that shows pride parades, protests and Bourelly singing the track into the camera. But it’s also a stunning representation of unity, action and love – themes that are brought home even more in the singer’s YouTube caption for the video.

She writes:

Sometimes when I’m on a plane, flying from country to country, city to city, chasing this peculiar dream of mine… I look down at the world beneath me and realize what we really are in the grand scheme of things. If you pay close attention, when the plane is just taking off you can faintly see people in action, living their own lives.

It’s ironic and charming in a weird way because they’re not even aware that someone else is admiring them with fascination from a different angle of the world, as they walk this distinctive earth of ours.

Thousands of tiny, moving heads eventually blend in with the landscape as the aircraft rises higher. The large swaying trees that appear to be so mighty from the ground, shrink into what appears to be green fragments of leaves…and by the time we reach the clouds, everything that we thought to be its own individual thing, every detail of anything that we ever considered to exist on its own, melts into the the scenery and we become one.

We are all one from the cloudsWe are not our genders We are not our religions We are not our racesWe are not our opinions We are not our doubts , insecurities or fears…

We are not one voice, we are a roaring crowd.

We are the land and sky; We are an ambiguous mixture of every color that exists under the sun.

We are all in this together and we are responsible for each other.

Everything you do or say matters to us, whether you realize it or not.

Love infinitely. At all costs no matter what.

praying 4 Orlando(and the rest of the entire world.)Fighting 4 our future.

New society 4 the unity of all.

Yours truly , Beebz.
