Welcome back to Eurosolution the absolutely amazing SAARA AALTO, who gets set to unleash her incredible new single "Dance Like Nobody's Watching"
LGBTQ+ Singer Saara Aalto launches her brand new music video, ‘Dance Like Nobody’s Watching’ with gender variant & transgender young persons charity, Mermaids.
The breathtakingly uplifting music video tells the important story of a transgender woman, played by Jessica Allen, looking back through her life to a time where she was not the person she was meant to be and longing to dance. Facing herself in the mirror today, she sees herself as the professional ballerina she knew she would always be, in a bold and emotional display of strength, positivity and hope. Today she is her true self.
The story is very close to Saara’s heart, she wrote the song and devised the story after speaking with friends who have experienced the same journey in life. Saara explains ‘Dance Like Nobody’s Watching’ is the most precious and important song of my career so far. I want this song and video to empower anybody who maybe doubts themselves or has others doubt them to see that you can truly be who you are meant to be. Your life can be incredible, beautiful and peaceful. It takes courage, strength and ultimately a no fear attitude, but you can do it’.

Jessica Allen, the video’s lead, is a professional ballerina and dancer having had principal roles in the musical ‘Cats’ & the English National Ballet Company. In 2013, Jessica realised she was transgender and began her transition; this, paired with a severe injury led to her retirement from professional dance. Jessica is now ready to take herself out of retirement and ‘Dance Like Nobody’s Watching’ is her first professional dancing role as her correct gender.
Saara launches the ‘Dance Like Nobody’s Watching’ music video on Sunday 3rd Feb with Mermaids, a charity providing much-needed support to gender variant and transgender children, young people and their families. Susie Green, CEO of Mermaids, says ‘This video is so important as it provides a positive representation of trans youth, and we know that this works towards increased acceptance and understanding. The world can be a hostile place for trans kids, this beautiful and emotive piece created by a mainstream artist, tackling some of the key issues faced, gives a platform that will be widely seen and appreciated.’
Saara goes on to say ‘As an LGBTQ+ artist myself, I have experienced prejudices both personal and professional, but I made my dream of being a singer come true and I want to use this platform to inspire others that you too can lead a lead positive and loving life’.
