V-Gifts Made Possible By Our Partners
- “Because You’re Beautiful” Available For Download Exclusively on iTunes
Composed by Toni Childs, David Ricketts and Eddie Free, “Because You’re Beautiful” is the original song featured in the V-Day documentary “Until The Violence Stops.” The song received the 2004 Emmy award for “Outstanding Music & Lyrics.” In early 2003, V-Day Founder/Artistic Director and Playwright (“The Vagina Monologues”) Eve Ensler met Toni Childs at V-Day Kauai. Ensler was already a big fan of Toni’s - the impact of Childs’ music on her life has been profound and a lifeline. By night’s end, Ensler found herself asking Toni to write an anthem for Until The Violence Stops. “ Because You Are Beautiful” is the result.
