I'm in! @Project Change if you all need me to tweet to Etienne or someone else, I can.

Maybe we can have both? With my picture at the end, pausing on it maybe as the music ends, and then fading to the names of the victims and Grimmie?

That may work. Everyone's issue was that Christina never shared or acknowledged the CNN tribute put to her song, so some members were thinking maybe she didn't like the victims being shown and wanted the idea axed.

I'm surprised they would think Christina feels that way. She isn't the type to tweet about everything and her lack of acknowledgment shouldn't necessarily mean disapproval

And I think for CNN to use Change, they need permission from the songwriters and she's one of them.

I really don't have a preference tbh. I'm just the guy in the middle hoping everyone can come to some agreement lol.

I had a fan on twitter tell me, in broken english, that if I post the victims faces then I am inhuman. I think if its tastefully done then it wont be an issue, I just don't want anyone to feel offended, ya know?

Yikes!that's my worry...some ppl feel very strongly about it and I don't want anyone offended. I do think what Hudson did was very tasteful though, but that won't matter for some.

Inhuman? People have always done tributes to those who have passed with their pictures set to music. This wouldn't be a full montage of all the victims throughout like the CNN montage though. Just one picture at the end.

No I know, i'm just relaying what one person had said to me, he's not the majority though and I know you'd never make something insenstive

Thanks! This is already making me emotional just looking at it. Good job sis.
I see this pic showing when Christina sings the last 2 lines of the song (When I was young I would look in the mirror / Didn't see it then but now it couldn't be clearer). Then leave it there for a few seconds to emphasize the message. If you like this idea, maybe it would make more sense to take out the "And" from the quote on the pic. From the outside, the "and" doesn't really make sense, you know what I mean?

I don't think you should include the photos of the victims if you want this acknowledged or tweeted by Christina. She has been keeping a respectful distance. And I think this video needs to as well. It is obvious what this concept means.

I know that image is nicely done and tasteful, but at the end of the day... this is a music video and do you have approval from all of the victims families to use their likeness in a Christina Aguilera music video?

Those photos were probably saved from their Facebook pages and have already been shared all over the world.

This beautiful and meaningful song doesn't need to do that. Stick with the concept you guys have. Honour the victims while respecting the privacy of the victims and their families. Just my opinion.

I get your point. It's true, everything is open to interpretation.
But this is not a Christina Aguilera video. It is a fan made video aiming at honoring people, raising awareness and conveying a message of hope.

True. I just feel it's more likely Christina and her team will embrace the video if it is fans showing love, and not a direct memorial type of video using photos.

Again, just because Christina didn't acknowledge the CNN video doesn't mean she disapproves of their photos being shown. 
And the photo isn't disrespecting the victims but honoring them.

It's gonna be a collage of the victims at the very end of the video. Like a short and sweet tribute to them. The main focus will be the fans and the message. It should be fine.
