Watch. Listen. Goapele. “Strong As Glass.” A Tribute to Survivors of Domestic Violence.


“You know I might not make it to the next time baby/ that you say you’re sorry I might go away.”

With a song written by Estelle, Goapele’s latest is a tribute to women who have survived domestic abuse.

The images in my new video for “Strong As Glass” will take you on a powerful journey. It was filmed in one of the lowest places on earth, Salton Sea, California. I found the vast expanses of this place both desolate and beautiful…a fitting location for a song that I hope will become an urgent anthem for women and girls who, like me, often feel alone or breakable.

This song is for those times when we feel taken for granted. It’s for those moments when we feel voiceless. It’s for every female out there who fears she’ll become a statistic. I want this song to remind us that we can break the silence that keeps us isolated. We must be our own champions.

Especially now during women’s history month, this song is for the 1 out of every 4, females in this nation who have been abused, or live daily under the treat of abuse.
