Premiere: Brooke Alexx is 'Shattering Glass'
The thing about glass is that when it reaches the breaking point, it doesn’t just fold or even fracture. Instead, glass shatters.
Brooke Alexx’s latest single, “Shattering Glass”, is an anthem for equality that is tearing down the brick walls of patriarchal prejudice and shattering the glass ceiling of gender stereotypes that have plagued this nation for decades. Upon first listen, I was immediately reminded of my experience witnessing the Nashville Women’s March 2.0 that took place this time last month. The energy when so many came together to speak out against injustice was awe-inspiring as images of women and allies making their voices heard throughout downtown returned to my memory.
Then, I saw the music video. It was as if the images and emotions I remembered were perfectly captured within the four edges of my computer screen. Depicted in the video are several fierce females shattering glass in their traditionally male-dominated fields, perfectly accompanied with the words of the Alexx’s song, “I’m standing tall, rising up above it all!” This powerful video was shot and edited by Brooke herself with some help from her friend, Kenneth Herron on the parts where she is featured. The powerful images of the video paired with the impeccable songwriting of Brooke Alexx and production from the talented Yuval Maayan will surely inspire listeners to shatter the glass of their own glass ceilings.
