The Body Positivity Song
Holly & Georgie are two pals from York who want you to love your body a little bit more. And over 60,000 people happen to agree with them.
Both performance-graduates-turned-mental-health-charity-staff, Holly & Georgie joined forces in 2019, united by their desire to celebrate body positivity during Mental Health Awareness Week.
The challenge? Over the course of the week, they would ask the general public what they liked most about their body and why, and then put their answers to music.
The task was more arduous than first thought; people were initially shy to get talking. After all, many people are told from an early age that our bodies aren’t good enough, that we should be striving to achieve the pinnacle of TV-show beauty, whatever the cost. But eventually, through a combination of conversational charm and some gentle nudging, the body positive quotes came forth. 1 ukulele, 4 pieces of notepaper and a hasty video recording later, The Body Positivity Song was born.
Imagine then Holly and Georgie's surprise when their little video hit a worldwide video sharing page on Facebook, ‘Pretty52’, and was viewed over 60,000 times in a week!
Not wanting to miss an opportunity, Holly & Georgie decided to record and release The Body Positivity Song as a single – with 100% of download & streaming proceeds being donated towards York Mind.
‘The Body Positivity Song’ by Holly & Georgie is available on iTunes & Spotify now!
