Sofia Carson - Applause (Official Music Video)

Our mission of We Do It Together is to use the power of cinema and media to stir and shake human hearts and minds. By banding together, we can alter deep-seated perceptions and stereotypes about women. As a first step, we give women from around the world a concrete way to express themselves, their talent, and their stories. When given the opportunity, women deliver stories that are every bit as compelling, accessible, and commercial, as their male counterparts.

With this song, we would like to applaud all women around the world!

We are doing an Oscar campaign for Applause. Please contact us or visit if you would like to support or donate to our cause.

Warm wishes,

Chiara Tilesi,
