Sia – Chandelier
Sia is an Australian singer/songwriter who made her international music debut as a backup singer for British funk band, Jamiroquai. It was after releasing her first album in 2001, when she gained international recognition for not so much her vocals but rather her songwriting abilities. After being noticed by various Hollywood score producers for songs such as “Breathe Me” and “Where I Belong”, Sia quickly caught the attention of some of music’s big names.
She went on to write hit songs for artists such as Rihanna, Christina Aguilera, Eminem, Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, Celine Dion, Britney Spears and Katy Perry to name but a few. In early 2014, Sia decided to turn her focus back to her own solo career and with it came the hit single “Chandelier”.
“Chandelier” is our featured music video of the week. The video features dance baby, Maddie Ziegler, from the reality show Dance Moms. Maddie performs an incredible interpretive dance piece, which despite her age, she does with amazing grace and a sense of maturity.
So sit back and enjoy and start getting those braai’s ready! We wish you all an awesome Heritage Day!
