Working with Sia, Julianne Moore, Zoe Saldana, and Ryan Heffington to #endHIV

August 10th, 2017

6x GRAMMY Award nominee, and multiplatinum selling artist/songwriter/hitmaker Sia announced a collaboration with the #endHIV Campaign, a project of the Abzyme Research Foundation — a nonprofit organization founded in 2011 to harness the

technology already developed to bring an HIV vaccine to human trials, and ultimately to patients. Sia’s newest moving ballad, “Free Me,” will benefit #endHIV with 100% of proceeds set to fund the production of the aforementioned vaccine and will be available on all U.S. digital service providers.

The song’s captivating music video, directed by Blake Martin, produced by Kimberly Stuckwisch and Executive Produced by Ian Blair with Diktator, is narrated by Oscar winning actress Julianne Moore, features actress Zoe Saldana as an expecting mother who finds out she is HIV positive. Saldana’s brave performance puts a human face on the reality many women face in the global HIV/AIDS epidemic. The video follows Saldana’s character and her range of emotions that are illustrated by a touching dance sequence choreographed by Ryan Heffington.

To date the video has had more that 3 million views, and raised tens of thousands of dollars.  Click here to check out some of the press, and stay in touch with our work on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
