India Arie’s Video

Although a couple years old, India Aries’ song Video captures the struggle we all feel to make ourselves conform to the world’s version of beauty. Listen to India’s music video and then take few moments to read through the song’s lyrics. When you’re done, discuss the following questions:

  1. The lyrics to this song mention God and beauty several times. What is the relationship between the two? Do you agree or disagree?
  2. Tell about a time that you have felt pressured to conform to someone else’s standard of beauty. How did you feel at the time?
  3. How does what India Arie says about beauty match up with the bible says about about true beauty? (Check out 1 Samuel 16:7)
