Sia Releases New Music Video, A Tribute To The Victims Of The Orlando Massacre (WATCH)

After releasing her new song “The Greatest” with Kendrick Lamar on Monday, the singer released an accompanying music video starring her favorite dancer, Maddie Ziegler — and this time, the 13-year-old had backup.

Featuring 49 dancers in total, “The Greatest” is reportedly a tribute to the 49 victims of the horrific Orlando shooting at Pulse nightclub earlier this summer. In the beginning of the video, the text “#WeAreYourChildren” flashes on the screen before Maddie uses her fingers to paint rainbows on her face. What follows is five minutes of gorgeous and emotional dancing, including a heartbreaking ending where all 49 dancers appear to shake in place before falling to the ground, revealing a wall with bullet holes in it.

Sia Features Yet Another Child In New Music Video

Following the release of her next ?This Is Acting ?song “Bird Set Free,” Sia has shared the music video for “Alive.” As you might expect, she’s not in it, but neither is her “Elastic Heart” and “Chandelier” muse Maddie Ziegler. This time she hired a miniature martial artist in a Sia wig to do her bidding, and yes, you will immediately realize that you will never be as cool as this kid. Sia co-directed the video with Daniel Askill, who was responsible for “Chandelier” and “Elastic Heart” as well.
