Two-time Juno-Nominated Recording Artist Eternia is partnering with Kids Help Phone to release “To The Future,” the third video single from Eternia & MoSS At Last (Fatbeats Records / E1 Canada). In “To the Future,” Canadian hip-hop artist Eternia bravely explores the skeletons in her own closet, detailing a first-hand account of sexual assault, domestic abuse, gun violence, and abortion. The bone-chilling song, written as a letter to Eternia’s future husband, is interpreted on film by Canadian video director Erica Shallow (TwoThreeFive Films). Set in a bare-bone, abandoned housing block, the music video portrays a stripped-down, natural and vulnerable artist performing directly to camera the painful reality of her teenage years. “That same year, I was assaulted with a gun. These dudes locked me in a room, molested me for fun” raps Eternia.
Every 90 seconds in America someone is sexually assaulted. Eternia and MoSS know that many young people face the same issues that Eternia did as a teenager and young adult, and so they have partnered with Canada’s leading youth counseling service, Kids Help Phone, to bring the message of hope and help along with Eternia’s personal story. “We feel that Eternia’s video is quite powerful and deals with some hard hitting, relevant issues and feelings that youth across Canada contact our services about” says David Holmes, National Marketing Manager fro Kids Help Phone.
