INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Singer and songstress Sia has teamed up with dancer Maddie Ziegler yet again to honor the victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting.
On June 12, 2016, a gunman opened fire on the LGBT club in Orlando, Florida, killing 49 people and injuring 53 others.
Tuesday, almost three months after the tragedy, Sia released a song titled “The Greatest,” accompanied by a music video.
Like in many of her videos, Sia herself doesn’t make an appearance. It poignantly stars exactly 49 young dancers to represent those lost in the massacre, according to those who collaborated on the piece.
Ziegler is among the 49 dancers. She dons rainbow war paint and leads her young costars into a frenzied party that ends when they all fall hauntingly still. In the final moments, viewers see Ziegler crying rainbow tears.
Sia took to social media to promote the tribute video, using the hashtag #WeAreYourChildren.
