Official Music Video Premiere

PopMatters premiered the video for Rachael's inspiring single "I Don't Believe It." Featuring up-and-coming dancer Kaci King, the video explores themes of empowerment and self-confidence through a variety of styles of dance including ballet and tap.

"An uplifting and powerful piece of music...picks you up, dusts you off and tells you that the bullies were wrong and aims to show one how much self-worth they have and how much they have to offer the world." - PopMatters
