American-British-Canadian girl group G.R.L. are back with new music. It's the first release from the group since they unfortunately lost a member when Simone Battle took her own life on September 5th 2014, just over 3 months after releasing their chart topping hit "Ugly Heart".
Since then, the remaining members Lauren Bennett, Emmalyn Estrada, Natasha Slayton and Paula van Oppen have channelled their emotion and left a stunning memory for their fellow bandmate and friend, in the only way a girlband knows how - a tribute song, entitled "Lighthouse". Along with the song, they've released this film clip, which features moments from Simone's life and time with the group.
The song is a touching exposition of the feeling and emotion of the groups willingness to assist with making sure problems are shared and resolved, rather than getting the better of others. And that's not just for their close friends and family - but the greater of everyone they can pass their message on to.
Partnering up with Give an Hour - a nonprofit mental health organisation founded in 2005 - the girls are aiming to get people to talk about issues affecting themselves, rather than bottling them up and letting something as devastating as what happened to Simone take place.
While their efforts might only be focused in America for the moment, there are countless organisations around the world aiming to do the same thing, specifically Lifeline in Australia.
If you're experiencing troubles and would like someone to talk with about them, please give Lifeline a call on 13 11 14.
