Sia has just added a little sunshine to our quarantine days with the new video for her song, “Together,” which is the first single from her upcoming directorial debut, Music.
Directed by Sia, the video is an explosion of color and choreography with dancer Maddie Ziegler, who’s starring in the film (and is often seen in Sia’s videos), is dressed as a praying emoji dancing around. She’s later joined by other Music cast members Kate Hudson, dressed as the peace hand sign emoji, and Leslie Odom Jr., who’s best known for portraying Aaron Burr in the Broadway hit, Hamilton. Actor Héctor Elizondo, who is also in the film, has a quick cameo, as well.
