Christina Aguilera‘s latest Lotus single, “Let There Be Love,” quietly landed at No. 1 on Billboard’s Dance/Club Play Songs back in May, fueled by fan support for the acceptance-preaching track. In keeping with her equality message, Aguilera has now released a DIY clip for “Let There Be Love,” featuring her friends Christina Milian, Nicole Richie and Chris Mann from The Voice.
But the real stars of the video are the fans: children who hold up homemade signs with powerful messages including “don’t judge,” “equality,” “racism sucks” and of course, “let there be love”; two men holding hands and kissing while (presumably) one of their mothers holds up a sign that reads “amo a mi hijo gay” (“I love my gay son”); a group of dancers in front of a sign that reads, “no racism, no sexism, just dance.”
At the start of the video, Aguilera says, “Hey everybody, Christina here just thanking you guys so much for filling my life and my heart with so much love continued throughout the years [and] standing by me. I appreciate all your support. This one is just for you.”
The message comes just one day after the singer posted a thoughtful thank you to fans on her website.
“I am so happy and at peace in life and I only want and wish you all to feel the same and live that way too!” she wrote. “Looking back, it’s amazing for me to be here now, today, feeling so proud and supported on my entire body of work displayed — both personally & professionally.”
