Beautiful
8 February 2020 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

After three decades, the music, the video are only significant. Both - more seductive for the clear noble message, for the gospel choir, for the sensuality perceived as symbols chain. Provocative ? Off course, it is a Madonna song ! But important is the precise way to define the violence and racism and to remind the love as basic trait of Christianity. So, beautiful.
